NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       phones  -  File  containing  the  remote host phone number

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


       The /etc/phones  file  contains  the  system-wide  private
       phone numbers for the tip(1) program.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This file is normally unreadable, and so may contain privileged
 information.  The format of the file is a series of
       lines of the form: systemname   phone-number

       where  systemname  is  defined in the /etc/remote file and
       phone-number is the system phone number terminated only by
       a  comma or by the end of the line.  Only one phone number
       per line is permitted.  However, if more than one line  in
       the  file  contains the same system name, tip will attempt
       to dial each one in turn, until it establishes  a  connection.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  following  example shows the entry in /etc/phones for
       the system, zeus: zeus              9=555-9898

       In this example, the = sign (or an  asterisk)  forces  the
       autocall  units  to pause and wait for a second dial tone,
       when going through an exchange.  The = is required by  the
       DF02-AC  (an  asterisk  would  be  required by the BIZCOMP


       Commands: tip(1).
