       uucico - uucp file transfer daemon

       /usr/lib/uucp/uucico [ -f ] [ -r1 ] [ -s system ] [ -x# ] [ -X# ]

       The  program  is  the  daemon associated with the utility. The daemon is automatically run when requests are made or when polling occurs as
       specified in It performs the actual file transfer over the network. The program first calls up the destination system and login.   After  a
       successful  login,  a  handshake  takes place between the destination daemon process and the local daemon. The handshake determines if each
       daemon has permission to use the other's local resources. Both daemons then select the protocol that will be used to send and  receive  raw

       The  local  daemon searches the spool directories for job requests, builds a list of files to transfer, then begins transmitting files. The
       file transfer protocol ensures that each file is transmitted only once and also notifies the user if a file cannot  be  transferred.  After
       the  program transfers all the files, the destination site transfers files back to the local system. When both systems have completed their
       file transfers, the connection through the network is terminated.

       The output of follows the progress of the conversation. Debugging output from the slave is placed in the file in the spool directory at the
       remote site. The output is less meaningful than the unless the source code is available to help interpret the messages.

       -f    Forces to start a conversation with a specified system, regardless of any previous connection status as provided by the files (system

       -r1   Puts into the master role. The slave mode is the default.

       -s system
	     Designates the system to be contacted.

       -x#   Sets the debugging level. The number sign (#) can have a value of 0 to 9. The higher the number, the more debugging output. No packet
	     level debugging is printed.

       -X#   Sets  packet  level  debugging  output.  The number sign (#) can have a value of 0 to 9. The higher the number, the more packet level

uucico - file transport program for the uucp system SYNOPSIS
/usr/lib/uucp/uucico [-f] [-c type] [-d spool-directory] [-i interface] [-r role-number] [-s system-name] [-x debug-level] DESCRIPTION
uucico is the file transport program for uucp work file transfers. OPTIONS
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. -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 /var/spool/uucp. -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 information. FILES
