5.7.4 Accepting a Call

called-login strings

The first string specifies the login name that the system must use when calling in. If it is `ANY' (e.g., `called-login ANY') any login name may be used; this is useful to override a file-wide default and to indicate that future alternates may have different login names. Case is significant. The default value is `ANY'.

Different alternates (see section 5.7.1 Defaults and Alternates) may use different called-login commands, in which case the login name will be used to select which alternate is in effect; this will only work if the first alternate (before the first alternate command) uses the called-login command.

Additional strings may be specified after the login name; they are a list of which systems are permitted to use this login name. If this feature is used, then normally the login name will only be given in a single called-login command. Only systems which appear on the list, or which use an explicit called-login command, will be permitted to use that login name. If the same login name is used more than once with a list of systems, all the lists are concatenated together. This feature permits you to restrict a login name to a particular set of systems without requiring you to use the called-login command for every single system; you can achieve a similar effect by using a different system file for each permitted login name with an appropriate called-login command in the file-wide defaults.

callback boolean

If boolean is true, then when the remote system calls uucico will hang up the connection and prepare to call it back. The default is false.

called-chat strings
called-chat-timeout number
called-chat-fail string
called-chat-seven-bit boolean
called-chat-program strings
These commands may be used to define a chat script (see section 5.5 Chat Scripts) that is run whenever the local system is called by the system being defined. The chat script defined by the chat command (see section Logging In), on the other hand, is used when the remote system is called. This called chat script might be used to set special modem parameters that are appropriate to a particular system. It is run after protocol negotiation is complete, but before the protocol has been started. For additional escape sequence which may be used besides those defined for all chat scripts, see Logging In. There is no default called chat script. If the called chat script fails, the incoming call will be aborted.
