How to Set Up an ATE Dialing Directory



  1. Create the dialing directory file:
    1. Change directories to the directory where the dialing directory file will reside.
    2. Copy the /usr/lib/dir file to use as a template. Rename the file to any valid file name.
    3. Create telephone number entries using the format given in the dialing directory file format.
    4. Save the file.
      Note: If the new dialing directory file is to be the system-wide default file, save the file with the name /usr/lib/dir.
  2. If the dialing directory file name is not the default (/usr/lib/dir), edit the ate.def file in the directory from which the ATE program is run. Change the DIRECTORY parameter in the ate.def file to the new dialing directory file.

  3. Start ATE and view the dialing directory with the directory subcommand.
