  • /etc/uucp/Systems – UUCP file that describes the characteristics of the remote peer

  • /etc/uucp/Devices – UUCP file that describes the modem on the local machine

  • /etc/uucp/Dialers – UUCP file that contains the login sequence to be used by the modem that is described in the /etc/uucp/Devices file
