uuxqt - UUCP execution daemon
uuxqt [ options ]
The uuxqt daemon executes commands requested by uux (1)
from either the local system or from remote systems. It
is started automatically by the uucico (8) daemon (unless
uucico (8) is given the -q or --nouuxqt option).
There is normally no need to run this command, since it
will be invoked by uucico (8). However, it can be used to
provide greater control over the processing of the work
Multiple invocations of uuxqt may be run at once, as con-
trolled by the max-uuxqts configuration command.
The following options may be given to uuxqt.
-c command, --command command
Only execute requests for the specified command. For
uuxqt --command rmail
-s system, --system system
Only execute requests originating from the specified
-x type, --debug type
Turn on particular debugging types. The following
types are recognized: abnormal, chat, handshake,
uucp-proto, proto, port, config, spooldir, execute,
incoming, outgoing. Only abnormal, config, spooldir
and execute are meaningful for uuxqt.
Multiple types may be given, separated by commas, and
the --debug option may appear multiple times. A num-
ber may also be given, which will turn on that many
types from the foregoing list; for example, --debug 2
is equivalent to --debug abnormal,chat.
The debugging output is sent to the debugging file,
usually one of /var/spool/uucp/Debug,
-I file, --config
Set configuration file to use. This option may not
be available, depending upon how uuxqt was compiled.
