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-level]


uucico is the file transport program for uucp work file transfers.


The following options are supported:

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.

-c type
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
specified type. The specified type is usually the
name of a local area network.

-d spool-directory
This option specifies the directory spool-directory
that contains the uucp work files to be
transferred. The default spool directory is

-i interface
This option defines the interface used with uucico.
The interface only affects slave mode. Known
interfaces are UNIX (default), TLI (basic Transport
Layer Interface), and TLIS (Transport Layer
Interface with Streams modules, read/write).

-r role-number
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.

-s system-name
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 Systems file.

-x debug-level
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
