For all its widespread use, UUCP is one of the most difficult UNIX utilities to master. Poor documentation, cryptic messages, and differences between various implementations make setting up UUCP links a nightmare for many a system administrator.
This handbook is meant for system administrators who want to install and manage the UUCP and Usenet software. It covers HoneyDanBer UUCP as well as standard Version 2 UUCP, with special notes on Xenix. As one reader noted over the Net, “Don’t even TRY to install UUCP without it!”
Topics covered in Managing UUCP include:
- How UUCP works.
- RS-232 cabling.
- Talking with modems.
- Setting up a UUCP link.
- Security considerations.
- UUCP administration.
- Introduction to Usenet.
- Installing Netnews.
- Administering Netnews.
The tenth edition of this classic work has been revised and expanded to include descriptions of:
- How to use NNTP (Network News Transfer Protocol) to transfer Usenet news over TCP/IP and other high-speed networks.
- How to get DOS versions of UUCP.
- How to set up DOS-based laptop computers as traveling UUCP nodes.
- How the UUCP ‘g’ protocol works.
