System-Name Time TCP Port networkname Standard-Login-Chat
A typical entry would resemble the following:
rochester Any TCP - ur-seneca login: Umachine password: xxx
Notice that the networkname field permits you to specify explicitly the TCP/IP host name. This capability is important for some sites. In the previous example, the site has the UUCP node name rochester, which is different from its TCP/IP host name ur-seneca. Moreover, a completely different machine could easily run UUCP and have the TCP/IP host name of rochester.
The Port field in the Systems file should have the entry -. This syntax is equivalent to listing the entry as uucp. In almost every situation, the networkname is the same as the system name, and the Port field is -, which says to use the standard uucp port from the services database. The in.uucpd daemon expects the remote machine to send its login and password for authentication, and in.uucpd prompts for them, much as getty and login do.
uucp 540/tcp uucpd # uucp daemon
You should not have to change the entry. However, if your machine runs NIS or NIS+ as its name service, you should change the /etc/nsswitch.conf entry for /etc/services to check files first, then check nis or nisplus.
# svcs network/uucp
The UUCP service is managed by the Service Management Facility. To query the status of this service, you can use the svcs command. For an overview of the Service Management Facility, refer to Chapter 18, Managing Services (Overview), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.
# inetadm -e network/uucp
