To allow a remote machine to access your system, you need to add an entry to the /etc/passwd file as follows:
For more information, see How to Obtain Administrative Rights in Oracle Solaris Administration: Security Services.
By convention, the login name of a remote machine is the machine name preceded by the uppercase letter U. Note that the name should not exceed eight characters. Otherwise, you might have to truncate or abbreviate the name.
The previous entry shows that a login request by Ugobi is answered by /usr/lib/uucp/uucico. The home directory is /var/spool/uucppublic. The password is obtained from the /etc/shadow file. You must coordinate the password and the login name with the UUCP administrator of the remote machine. The remote administrator must then add an appropriate entry, with login name and unencrypted password, in the remote machine's Systems file.
