Difference between Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP) and Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)

The main difference between the Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP) and Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) is that Serial Line Internet Protocol is the Predecessor protocol of Point-to-Point Protocol. On the other hand, Point-to-Point Protocol is the Successor protocol of Serial Line Internet Protocol.

Let’s see that difference between SLIP and PPP:

1. SLIP stands for Serial Line Internet Protocol. PPP stands for Point-to-Point Protocol.
2. SLIP is a Predecessor protocol of PPP. While It is a Successor protocol of SLIP.
3. SLIP covers the internet protocol packet. While it covers the datagram.
4. SLIP does not provide authentication. While PPP provides authentication.
5. The derived Protocol from SLIP is Compressed SLIP. While the derived protocol from PPP is PPP over Ethernet and PPP over ATM.
6. SLIP is a static IP addressing assignment. While it is a dynamic IP addressing assignment.
7. In SLIP data is transferred in synchronous form. While in this, data is transferred in both synchronous and asynchronous form.
