UUCP /etc/uucp/Devconfig File

The /etc/uucp/Devconfig file enables you to configure devices by service, such as uucp or cu. Devconfig entries define the STREAMS modules that are used for a particular device. These entries have the following format:

service=x device=y push=z[:z...]

x can be cu, uucico, or both services separated by a colon. y is the name of a network and must match an entry in the Devices file. z is replaced by the names of STREAMS modules in the order that they are to be pushed onto the Stream. Different modules and devices can be defined for cu and uucp services.

The following entries are for a STARLAN network and would most commonly be used in the file:

service=cu       device=STARLAN     push=ntty:tirdwr 
service=uucico   device=STARLAN     push=ntty:tirdwr 

This example pushes ntty, then tirdwr.
