NAME
       phones -	remote host phone number database

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/phones

DESCRIPTION
       The file	/etc/phones contains the system-wide private phone numbers for
       the tip(1) program. /etc/phones is normally unreadable, and so may con-
       tain  privileged	information.  The format of /etc/phones	is a series of
       lines of	the form:

       <system-name>[ \t]*<phone-number>.

       The system name is one of those defined in the remote(4)	file  and  the
       phone  number  is  constructed  from  [0123456789-=*%]. The `=' and `*'
       characters are indicators to the	auto call units	to pause and wait  for
       a  second  dial	tone (when going through an exchange).	The `='	is re-
       quired by the DF02-AC and the `*' is required by	the BIZCOMP 1030.

       Comment lines are lines containing a `#'	sign in	the  first  column  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(1) will  attempt  to
       dial each one in	turn, until it establishes a connection.
