uux - unix to unix command execution SYNOPSIS
uux [ - ] command-string DESCRIPTION
Uux will gather 0 or more files from various systems, execute a command on a specified system and send standard output to a file on a spec- ified system. The command-string is made up of one or more arguments that look like a shell command line, except that the command and file names may be prefixed by system-name!. A null system-name is interpreted as the local system. File names may be one of(1) a full pathname; (2) a pathname preceded by ~xxx; where xxx is a userid on the specified system and is replaced by that user's login directory; (3) anything else is prefixed by the current directory. The `-' option will cause the standard input to the uux command to be the standard input to the command-string. For example, the command uux "!diff usg!/usr/dan/f1 pwba!/a4/dan/f1 > !fi.diff" will get the f1 files from the usg and pwba machines, execute a diff command and put the results in f1.diff in the local directory. Any special shell characters such as <>;| should be quoted either by quoting the entire command-string, or quoting the special characters as individual arguments. FILES
/usr/uucp/spool - spool directory /usr/uucp/* - other data and programs SEE ALSO
uucp(1) D. A. Nowitz, Uucp implementation description WARNING
An installation may, and for security reasons generally will, limit the list of commands executable on behalf of an incoming request from uux. Typically, a restricted site will permit little other than the receipt of mail via uux. BUGS
Only the first command of a shell pipeline may have a system-name!. All other commands are executed on the system of the first command. The use of the shell metacharacter * will probably not do what you want it to do. The shell tokens << and >> are not implemented. There is no notification of denial of execution on the remote machine. UUX(1C)

uuxqt - UUCP execution file interpreter SYNOPSIS
/usr/libexec/uuxqt [ -xdebug ] DESCRIPTION
Uuxqt interprets execution files created on a remote system via uux(1) and transferred to the local system via uucico(8). When a user uses uux to request remote command execution, it is uuxqt that actually executes the command. Normally, uuxqt is forked from uucico to process queued execution files; for debugging, it may also be run manually by the UUCP administrator. Uuxqt runs in its own subdirectory, /usr/spool/uucp/XTMP. It copies intermediate files to this directory when necessary. FILES
/etc/uucp/L.cmds Remote command permissions list /etc/uucp/USERFILE Remote directory tree permissions list /usr/spool/uucp/LOGFILE UUCP system activity log /usr/spool/uucp/LCK/LCK.XQT Uuxqt lock file /usr/spool/uucp/X./ Incoming execution file directory /usr/spool/uucp/XTMP Uuxqt running directory SEE ALSO
