uucico - file transport program for the uucp system
/usr/lib/uucp/uucico [-f] [-c type] [-d spool-directory] [-
i interface] [-r role-number] [-s system-name] [-x debug-
uucico is the file transport program for uucp work file
The following options are supported:
-f This option is used to "force execution" of uucico by
ignoring the limit on the maximum number of uucicos
defined in the /etc/uucp/Limits file.
The first field in the Devices file is the "Type"
field. The -c option forces uucico to only use
entries in the "Type" field that match the user speci-
fied type. The specified type is usually the name of a
local area network.
This option specifies the directory spool-directory
that contains the uucp work files to be transferred.
The default spool directory is /var/spool/uucp.
This option defines the interface used with uucico.
The interface only affects slave mode. Known inter-
faces are UNIX (default), TLI (basic Transport Layer
Interface), and TLIS (Transport Layer Interface with
Streams modules, read/write).
The role-number 1 is used for master mode. role-number
0 is used for slave mode (default). When uucico is
started by a program or cron, role-number 1 should be
used for master mode.
The -s option defines the remote system (system-name)
that uucico will try to contact. It is required when
the role is master; system-name must be defined in the
Both uux and uucp queue jobs that will be transferred
by uucico. These jobs are normally started by the
uusched scheduler, for debugging purposes, and can be
started manually. For example, the shell Uutry starts
uucico with debugging turned on. The debug-level is a
number between 0 and 9. Higher numbers give more
detailed debugging information.
