NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       remote - Remote host description file

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  /etc/remote file stores in an ASCII file, remote system
 attributes known by tip.  Each line in the  file  provides
 a description for a single system.  Fields are separated
 by colons (:).  Lines ending in a backslash (\) followed
  immediately by a newline character are continued on
       the next line.

       The first entry is the names of the host system.  If there
       is  more  than  one name for a system, the names are separated
 by vertical bars.  After  the  name  of  the  system
       comes  the  fields  of the description.  A field name followed
 by an equal sign (=) indicates a string  value  follows.
   A  field  name followed by a number sign (#) indicates
 a following numeric value.

CAPABILITIES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Capabilities are either strings (str), numbers  (num),  or
       Boolean flags (bool).  A string capability is of the form:

       An example is: dv=/dev/harris

       A numeric capability is of the form: capability#value

       An example is: xa#99

       A Boolean capability is specified simply  by  listing  it.
       The  following  are available capabilities: (str) Autocall
       unit type.   This  string  is  what  is  searched  for  in
       /etc/acucap to decide if the generic dialer is to be used.
       For more information, see acucap(4).  (num) The baud  rate
       used  in  establishing  a  connection  to the remote host.
       This is a decimal number.  The default baud  rate  is  300
       baud.   (str)  An initial connection message to be sent to
       the remote host.   For  example,  if  a  host  is  reached
       through  port selector, this might be set to the appropriate
 sequence required to switch to the host.   (str)  Call
       unit  if  making a phone call.  Default is the same as the
       dv field.  (str) Disconnect message sent to the host  when
       a  disconnect  is requested by the user.  (bool) This host
       is on a dial-up line.   (str)  UNIX  devices  to  open  to
       establish a connection.  If this file refers to a terminal
       line, tip attempts to perform an  exclusive  open  on  the
       device to ensure only one user at a time has access to the
       port.   (str)  Characters  marking  an  end-of-line.   The
       default  is NULL.  Tilde (~) escapes are recognized by tip
       only after one of the characters in el, or  after  a  carriage-return.
    (str)  Frame  size  for  transfers.   The
       default frame size is equal to BUFSIZ.   (bool)  The  host
       uses  half-duplex communication; local echo should be performed.
  (str) Input end-of-file marks.   The  default  is
       NULL.   (str)  Output  end-of-file string.  The default is
       NULL.  When tip is transferring a  file,  this  string  is
       sent at end-of-file.  (str) The type of parity to use when
       sending data to the host.  The type can be  one  of  even,
       odd,  none,  zero (always set bit 8 to zero), or 1 (always
       set bit 8 to 1).  The default is  none.   (str)  Telephone
       numbers for this host.  If the telephone number field contains
 an @ sign, tip searches the  file  /etc/phones  file
       for  a  list  of telephone numbers.  For more information,
       see phones(4).  (str) Indicates that the list of capabilities
  is continued in the named description.  This is used
       primarily to share common capability information.

EXAMPLES    [Toc]    [Back]

       Here is a short example showing the use of the  capability
       continuation              feature:             UNIX-1200:\
            :du:at=df112:ie=#$%:oe=^D:br#1200:        ourvax|ox:\


       Commands: tip(1).
