     CT(1)                                                       CT(1)

          ct - call terminal (and start a session)

          ct [-c count ] [-w interval ] [-h] phone-number [ service-
          class ]

          Ct places a telephone call to a remote terminal and allows a
          user to log in on that terminal in the normal fashion.  The
          terminal must be equipped with an auto-answer modem.

          The phone number and service class are interpreted the same
          way as by cu(1). If ct cannot reach the number given, it
          tries again the number of times given by count (default 5),
          waiting each time for a given interval (default 60 seconds).

          If the -h option is given, ct tries to hang up the phone
          before placing the call.  This is useful for a ``call me
          right back'' type of arrangement.
