Name
       phones - remote host phone number data base

Description
       The  file  contains the system-wide private phone numbers for the program.  This file is normally unreadable, and so can contain privileged
       information.

       The format of the file is a series of lines of the form: <system-name>[ 	]*<phone-number>.  The system name is one of those defined in the
       file  and  the phone number is constructed from [0123456789-=*%].  The equal sign (=) and the asterisk (*) characters are indicators to the
       autocall units to pause and wait for a second dial tone when going through an exchange.	The equal sign (=) is required by the DF02-AC; the
       asterisk (*) 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, attempts to dial
       each one in turn, until it establishes a connection.
