NAME
     dialups - list of terminal devices requiring a dial-up pass-
     word

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/dialups

DESCRIPTION
     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 pass-
     word must be entered before the user is  granted  access  to
     the  computer. The set of ports that require a dial-up pass-
     word are  listed in the dialups file.

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



          terminal-device



     where

     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 port.

     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.
