It's easy enough to teach other UNIX machines about unixpcs simply by copying
the /etc/termcap entry for "unixpc" from the unixpc, putting it in your home
directory on the remote machine, and placing this in your profile:
Better: TERMCAP=`cat $HOME/<termcapfile>` export TERMCAP.  Makes most
packages start off much faster.
Best: get the other system's System admin to install the entry
into their /etc/termcap, and somehow pull out the unixpc entry and
stuff it into the TERMCAP variable.

Though, of course, this ain't particularly useful on non-UNIX machines.

I gave up on phone long ago - partly because it doesn't work at all for
some reason ;-)
