This problem is not present with the current version of
Mathematica (2.2.2). For information about upgrading contact
info at or call 1-800-441-6284.

Note that by upgrading to the current version of Mathematica
for the Macintosh you will also get a native Power Mac 
version which will run much, much faster on your 8100.

In the mean time, in most implementations of SLIP (certainly 
InterSLIP and MacSLIP), there is an option which will not 
dial the modem if TCP has been initialized. Choosing this 
option should prevent Mathematica from dialing your phone.

If you need further help with this I would suggest that you 
contact Wolfram Research Technical Support (support at

I hope this helps.
