       dialups - list of terminal devices requiring a dial-up password


       dialups	is an  ASCII file which contains a list of terminal devices  that require a dial-
       up password. A dial-up password is an additional password required of users who access the
       computer through a modem or dial-up port.  The correct password must be entered before the
       user is granted access to the computer. The set of ports that require a	dial-up  password
       are  listed in the dialups file.

       Each entry in the dialups file is a single line of the form:



       terminal-device	  The  full  path name of the terminal device that will require a dial-up
			  password for users accessing the computer through a  modem  or  dial-up

       The  dialups  file  should  be owned by the root user and the root group.  The file should
       have read and write permissions for the owner (root) only.

       Example 1 A sample dialups file.

       Here is a sample dialups file:


       /etc/d_passwd	dial-up password file

       /etc/dialups	list of dial-up ports requiring dial-up passwords
