SEND-UUCP(8)									     SEND-UUCP(8)

       send-uucp, send-nntp, send-ihave - send Usenet articles to remote site

       {  send-nntp  |	send-uucp  |  send-ihave  }  [	-d ] sitename:hostname | sitename [ site-
       name:hostname | sitename ..  ]

       The send-* utilities are scripts that process the batch files written by innd(8)  to  send
       Usenet articles to a remote NNTP or UUCP site.

       The  sites  to  be  fed	may be specified by giving sitename hostname pairs on the command

       The sitename is the label the site has in the newsfeeds file, the  hostname  is	the  real
       hostname  of  the remote site, a FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) in the case of an NNTP
       host, or the UUCP name in the case of a UUCP host.  Normally, the sitename and  the  host-
       name  are  the same, and as such don't have to be specified as sitename:hostname pairs but
       just as a sitename.

       send-uucp compresses batches of news and sends the to the remote site with uux.

       send-nntp Starts an innxmit to send the articles to the remote site.

       send-ihave encapsulates the articles in an ihave control message and uses  inews  to  send
       the  articles  to a to.sitename pseudo-group. Using send-ihave is discouraged, nobody uses
       it anymore and even the author of this manpage is unsure as to how it  actually	works  or
       used to work.

       send-*  expect that the batchfile for a site is named <pathoutgoing in inn.conf>/sitename.
       To prevent batchfile corruption, shlock(1) is used to ``lock'' these files.

       -d     The ``-d'' flag causes nntpsend to send output to stdout rather than the	log  file
	      <pathlog in inn.conf>/<program-name>.log.

       You should probably not use send-nntp, but innfeed, or if that is not possible, nntpsend.

       The  usual  flags  in  the  newsfeed file to write a batch file suitable for processing by
       send-uucp are Tf,Wfb .

       The usual flags for a batch file for send-nntp are Tf,Wfm

       newsfeeds(5), nntpsend(8)
