UUCP (Overview)

This chapter introduces the UNIX-to-UNIX Copy Program (UUCP) and its daemons. The following topics are covered:

UUCP enables computers to transfer files and exchange mail with each other. The program also enables computers to participate in large networks such as Usenet.

The Solaris OS provides the Basic Network Utilities (BNU) version of UUCP, also known as HoneyDanBer UUCP. The term UUCP denotes the complete range of files and utilities that compose the system, of which the program uucp is only a part. The UUCP utilities range from those utilities that are used to copy files between computers (uucp and uuto) to those utilities that are used for remote login and command execution (cu and uux).
