Port Selector

The port selector is a variable that is replaced in the Type field by the name of a port selector. Port selectors are devices that are attached to a network that prompts for the name of a calling modem, then grant access. The file /etc/uucp/Dialers contains caller scripts only for the micom and develcon port selectors. You can add your own port selector entries to the Dialers file. See UUCP /etc/uucp/Dialers File for more information.
