NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     uucico - file transport program for the uucp system

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/lib/uucp/uucico [-r role] [-x	level] [-i iface] [-d spool_dir]
	  -s system_name

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     uucico is the file	transport program for uucp work	file transfers.	 Role
     numbers for the -r	are the	digit 1	for master mode	or 0 for slave mode
     (default).	 The -r	option should be specified as the digit	1 for master
     mode when uucico is started by a program or cron.	uux and	uucp both
     queue jobs	that will be transferred by uucico. It is normally started by
     the scheduler, uusched, but can be	started	manually; this is done for
     debugging.	 For example, the shell	uutry starts uucico with debugging
     turned on.	 A single digit	must be	used for the -x	option with higher
     numbers for more debugging.

     The -i option defines the interface used with uucico.  This interface
     only affects slave	mode.  The known interface is UNIX.

     The device	names, dialers,	and so forth in	/usr/lib/uucp/Devices must be
     correct.  The device names	used by	uucp, such as /dev/ttym3, must be
     readable and writable by the "user" uucp.

     Before starting to	transfer a file, uucico	checks to see if the file
     /etc/nologin exists.  If it does, the connection is broken.

     Any user name under which uucico runs (any	"user" with
     /usr/lib/uucp/uucico as its shell in /etc/passwd) must be no more than 8
     characters	long.  This restriction	is a result of the nature of the
     /var/adm/utmp file.  System-names longer than 8 characters	generally do
     not work because of UUCP protocol restrictions.  In both cases, one tends
     to	suffer strange "permission problems."
