NAME
       nfxmit, nfrcv - notesfile networking programs

SYNOPSIS
       nfxmit -dsite [ -r ] [ -a ] [ -i ] [ -t date-spec ] [ -f file ] topic [ ... ]

       nfrcv topic fromsystem

DESCRIPTION
       Nfxmit and nfrcv implement networking of notesfiles.  The nfxmit program packages eligible
       new articles and sends them to a remote system.	Nfrcv is the receiving end of this team.

       Nfxmit sends the specified notesfiles to the site specified with the -d	option.   The  -r
       option  specifies  that a request should be queued for the remote site to transmit updates
       from its copies of the notesfiles sent.	The -r option is used only if the other site does
       not automatically queue updates of the notesfile.

       Specify -a to have articles which originated in news(1) sent.  News(1)-originated articles
       will usually reach each system via the news program.

       The -i option indicates that nfxmit is to send articles to the destination  that  it  nor-
       mally  would  not send.	These articles are those that were written there or were received
       at the local site from that particular site.  The -i option is separate from the timestamp
       functions.  Articles are first selected on the basis of the time received and criteria for
       having passed through news or the destination system are applied later.

       A timestamp of the last transmission of each notesfile to each system is maintained.  This
       is  used  for determining the notes to send.  If a different timestamp is desired, use the
       -t option.  The supplied timestamp is used for this transfer and the stored  timestamp  is
       updated.

       Specify	-f myfile on the command line to have nfxmit read myfile for a list of notesfiles
       to be sent.  This is useful if the number of notesfiles is too numerous to list on a  sin-
       gle  command  line.   The  shell meta-characters *, ?, [, and ] are recognized in both the
       topic parameter and the entries in myfile.

       Nfxmit uses uux(I) to invoke nfrcv on the remote system in order to process  the  incoming
       notes.	  Non-uucp    connections    are    supported	and   specified   in   the   file
       /usr/spool/notes/.utilities/net.how

FILES
       /usr/spool/notes/.utilities/net.how	    specifies connection methods between systems
       /usr/spool/notes/.utilities/net.alias	    directory containing  mapping  of  local  and
						    remote notesfile names
       /usr/spool/notes/.sequencer/Sy:sysname	    Seqeuncing timestamps for sysname.
