       remote - remote host description file


       The  systems  known  by	tip(1)	and their attributes are stored in an ASCII file which is
       structured somewhat like the termcap file. Each line in the file  provides  a  description
       for  a single system. Fields are separated by a colon `:'. Lines ending in a `\' character
       with an immediately following NEWLINE are continued on the next line.

       The first entry is the name(s) 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 `=' sign indicates a string  value
       follows. A field name followed by a `#' sign indicates a following numeric value.

       Entries	named  tipbaudrate  are  used as default entries by tip, as follows.  When tip is
       invoked with only a phone number, it looks for an entry of  the	form  tipbaudrate,  where
       baudrate  is  the  baud rate with which the connection is to be made.  For example, if the
       connection is to be made at  300 baud, tip looks for an entry of the form tip300.

       Capabilities are either strings (str), numbers (num), or boolean flags  (bool).	A  string
       capability  is  specified  by  capability=value;  for example, `dv=/dev/harris'. A numeric
       capability is specified by capability#value; for example, `xa#99'. A boolean capability is
       specified by simply listing the capability.

       at    (str)  Auto  call	unit  type. The following lists valid 'at' types and their corre-
	     sponding hardware:

	     biz31f    Bizcomp 1031, tone dialing

	     biz31w    Bizcomp 1031, pulse dialing

	     biz22f    Bizcomp 1022, tone dialing

	     biz22w    Bizcomp 1022, pulse dialing

	     df02      DEC DF02

	     df03      DEC DF03

	     ventel    Ventel 212+

	     v3451     Vadic 3451 Modem

	     v831      Vadic 831

	     hayes     Any Hayes-compatible modem

	     at        Any Hayes-compatible modem

       br    (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.

       cm    (str) An initial connection message to be sent to the remote host. For example, if a
	     host is reached through a port selector,  this  might  be	set  to  the  appropriate
	     sequence required to switch to the host.

       cu    (str) Call unit if making a phone call. Default is the same as the dv field.

       db    (bool)  Cause  tip(1)  to ignore the first hangup it sees.  db (dialback) allows the
	     user to remain in tip while the remote machine disconnects and places a call back to
	     the  local  machine.  For	more information about dialback configuration, see System
	     Administration Guide: IP Services.

       di    (str) Disconnect message sent to the host when a  disconnect  is  requested  by  the

       du    (bool) This host is on a dial-up line.

       dv    (str) Device(s) 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	insure	only  one
	     user at a time has access to the port.

       ec    (bool)  Initialize  the  tip  variable echocheck to on, so that tip will synchronize
	     with the remote host during file transfer by waiting for the echo of the last  char-
	     acter transmitted.

       el    (str)  Characters	marking  an  end-of-line.  The default is no characters. tip only
	     recognizes `~' escapes after one of the characters in el, or after a RETURN.

       es    (str) The command prefix (escape) character for tip.

       et    (num) Number of seconds to wait for an echo response when	echo-check  mode  is  on.
	     This is a decimal number.	The default value is  10 seconds.

       ex    (str)  Set of non-printable characters not to be discarded when scripting with beau-
	     tification turned on.  The default value is "\t\n\b\f".

       fo    (str) Character used to force literal  data  transmission.   The  default	value  is

       fs    (num) Frame size for transfers. The default frame size is equal to  1024.

       hd    (bool)  Initialize  the  tip variable halfduplex to on, so local echo should be per-

       hf    (bool) Initialize the tip variable hardwareflow to on, so hardware flow  control  is

       ie    (str) Input end-of-file marks.  The default is a null string ("").

       nb    (bool)  Initialize  the tip variable beautify to off, so that unprintable characters
	     will not be discarded when scripting.

       nt    (bool) Initialize the tip variable tandem to off, so  that   XON/XOFF  flow  control
	     will not be used to throttle data from the remote host.

       nv    (bool)  Initialize  the  tip  variable  verbose to off, so that verbose mode will be
	     turned on.

       oe    (str) Output end-of-file string.  The default is a null string ("").  When   tip  is
	     transferring a file, this string is sent at end-of-file.

       pa    (str)  The  type of parity to use when sending data to the host.  This may be one of
	     even, odd, none, zero (always set bit  8 to 0), one (always set bit  8 to	1).   The
	     default is none.

       pn    (str)  Telephone  number(s) for this host. If the telephone number field contains an
	     `@' sign, tip searches the /etc/phones file for a list of telephone numbers  --  see
	     phones(4).  A  `%'  sign  in the telephone number indicates a 5-second delay for the
	     Ventel Modem.

	     For Hayes-compatible modems, if the telephone number starts with an 'S',  the  tele-
	     phone  number string will be sent to the modem without the "DT", which allows recon-
	     figuration of the modem's S-registers and other parameters; for example, to  disable
	     auto-answer:   "pn=S0=0DT5551234";  or to also restrict the modem to return only the
	     basic result codes:  "pn=S0=0X0DT5551234".

       pr    (str) Character that indicates end-of-line on the remote host.  The default value is

       ra    (bool)  Initialize  the  tip  variable  raise  to on, so that lower case letters are
	     mapped to upper case before sending them to the remote host.

       rc    (str) Character that toggles case-mapping mode.  The default value is  `\377'.

       re    (str) The file in which to record session scripts.  The default value is tip.record.

       rw    (bool) Initialize the tip variable rawftp to on, so that all characters will be sent
	     as is during file transfers.

       sc    (bool)  Initialize  the tip variable script to on, so that everything transmitted by
	     the remote host will be recorded.

       tb    (bool) Initialize the tip variable tabexpand to on, so that tabs will be expanded to
	     spaces during file transfers.

       tc    (str) Indicates that the list of capabilities is continued in the named description.
	     This is used primarily to share common capability information.

       Example 1 Using the Capability Continuation Feature

       Here is a short example showing the use of the capability continuation feature:


       /etc/remote    remote host description file.

       /etc/phones    remote host phone number database.

       tip(1), phones(4)
