NAME
       phones - remote host phone number data base

DESCRIPTION
       The  file  /etc/phones contains the system-wide private phone numbers for the tip(1C) pro-
       gram.  This file is normally unreadable, and so may contain privileged  information.   The
       format  of  the	file is a series of lines of the form: <system-name>[ \t]*<phone-number>.
       The system name is one of those defined in the remote(5) file and the phone number is con-
       structed  from any sequence of characters terminated only by ``,'' or the end of the line.
       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 required by the DF02-AC
       and the ``*'' is required by the BIZCOMP 1030.

       Only one phone number per line is permitted.  However, if more than one line in	the  file
       contains  the  same  system  name  tip(1C) will attempt to dial each one in turn, until it
       establishes a connection.
