file transport program for the UUCP system
/usr/lib/uucp/uucico [ -r role# ] [ -x debug_level ] [ -i interface ] [ -d spool ] [ [ -s | -S ] site ]
uucico is the file transport program for UUCP work file
transfers. It is normally started by the scheduler,
uusched, but can be started manually; this is done for debugging.
(For example, uutry starts uucico with
debugging turned on.) uux and uucp both
queue jobs for transfer by uucico.
The following options are recognized:
Specify the spool directory: the default is /usr/spool/uucp.
Defines the interface used with uucico.
This 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).
Specifies the role uucico adopts on startup. role#
can be either the digit 1 for master mode or 0 for slave mode (default).
Master mode should be selected when uucico is started by a
program or cron.
Force a call to the system site
even if there is no work for site site
in the spool directory, but call only when times in the
Systems file permit it. Incompatible with the -S option.
(This is useful for polling sites that do not have
the hardware to initiate a connection.)
Specify the system name,
overriding the call schedule given in the Systems file.
For example, -S can be used to call a
system which is said to be ``Never'' called in the Systems
file. Incompatible with the -s option.
Start uucico in debug mode. debug_level is in the
range 1 to 9, and specifies the level of debugging output produced.
(See the System Administration Guide for a discussion of
Changing packet parameters
It is possible to change the packet and window parameters used by
uucico when communicating under the `g' or `G' protocol.
These parameters are controlled by the Configuration file;
