You can configure UUCP to use TCP as its transport protocol. This is usually done to transfer mail to and from remote systems that do not support SMTP.
To configure UUCP to use a CS dialer:
#CS - - - CSso that it reads:
CS - - - CS
remotesys Any CS,e - -,listen:10103This will try to establish a connection with the listener on the remote system, remotesys, using the service number 10103.
The name remotesys must be resolvable to an IP address.
LOGNAME=nuucpwhich is equivalent to:
LOGNAME=nuucp \ MACHINE=other \ REQUEST=no \ SENDFILES=call \ READ=/var/spool/uucppublic \ WRITE=/var/spool/uucppublic \ AUTH=no \ COMMANDS=rmailThe following entries would permit extremely liberal access by nuucp, but only from remotesys:
LOGNAME=nuucp \ MACHINE=remotesys \ REQUEST=yes \ SENDFILES=yes \ READ=/ \ WRITE=/ \ COMMANDS=allIn this example, the
MACHINE=other \ REQUEST=no \ SENDFILES=call \ READ=/var/spool/uucppublic \ WRITE=/var/spool/uucppublic \ COMMANDS=rmail
LOGNAME=nuucpentry is only suitable for initial testing. You should subsequently restrict the settings for COMMANDS, READ, REQUEST, SENDFILES, and WRITE to close any potential security holes.
