NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     uucpd - UUCP over TCP/IP daemon

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     /usr/lib/uucp/uucpd [-na] [-x num]	[-L logfile] [-u cmd]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     uucpd allows the use of incoming UUCP connections over TCP/IP.  The
     UUCP/TCP server operates at the port indicated in the uucp	service
     description; see services(4).  The	server is normally started by

     Any of the	UUCP protocols supported by uucico can be used,	but 'e'	and
     't' are most common.

     uucpd relies primarily on the authentication mechanisms of	uucico.
     However, it first obtains a username and password from the	remote system,
     and checks	them in	much the same way as getty and login.  The shell,
     username, UID, and	so forth for the account should	the same as for	a UUCP
     connection	using modems.  An additional restriction is that the shell of
     the account must be the uucico program.

     The /etc/nologin file is honored by uucico.

     The uucpd options are:

     -n		  (or nostrip) Turns off the stripping to 7-bits of the	user
		  name and password that is normal done	before they are

     -a		  Verifies that	the remote hostname and	address	match on all
		  incoming connections.

     -x	num	  Causes uucico	to be invoked with -x num.  num	must be	a
		  single digit.

     -L	logfile	  Records the chatting for username and	password in logfile.

     -u	cmd	  Specifies that cmd instead of	/usr/lib/uucp/uucico must be
		  the shell of the account.
