Connecting to other computers with UUCP
Use UUCP (``UNIX-to-UNIX Copy'') to build a remote network
system for your computer using normal telephone lines and modems.
If your computer is on a local area network or is running TCP/IP, you
probably do not need to set up UUCP. Local area networks and TCP/IP
networks provide continuous connections that may be used in many ways,
whereas UUCP provides only a scheduled file transfer capability.
UUCP is not a terminal emulation program. To
log on to another computer over a modem, see
Chapter 24, ``Adding modems'' in the SCO OpenServer Handbook
and follow the instructions for connecting a modem.
The UUCP package consists of a group of programs
remote file transfer (uucp),
remote command execution (uux), and
mail to and from remote sites.
