<h1>Doing UUCP with SDF</h1>
<strong>UUCP</strong> (Unix-to-Unix Copy) is a great way to get your mail and news, even without a stable or static Internet connection.

<h2 id="section-2">UUCP Node Configuration</h2>
<h3 id="taylor-config">Taylor UUCP</h3>
<p>Configuration files are typically located in <code>/etc/uucp</code>, but
the location varies from OS to OS. In FreeBSD if you installed
<code>freebsd-uucp</code> from ports the configuration files will be at
<code>/usr/local/etc/uucp</code>.</p> <p>The main file you need to edit is the
sys file. A sample of the <code>sys</code> config file you could use is as follows:</p>
<pre><code>
system sdf
alias mx
address uucp.sdf.org
call-login Uusername
call-password Password
time Any
port TCP
chat "" \d\d\r\c login: \d\L word: \P
protocol t
myname your_uname
</code></pre>
<p>You will also need a <code>config</code> file.</p>
<pre><code>
nodename uyour_name
spool /var/spool/uucp
pubdir /var/spool/uucppublic
logfile /var/log/uucp/Log
statfile /var/log/uucp/Stats # The UUCP statistics file
debugfile /var/log/uucp/Debug # The UUCP debugging file
</code></pre>
<p>And a <code>port</code> file.</p>
<pre><code>
port TCP
type tcp
</code></pre>
<h3 id="hdb-config">HDB UUCP</h3>
<p>TODO ...</p>
<h2 id="poll-sdf">How to POLL SDF</h2>
<p>You can poll SDF manually by running <code>uucico sdf</code>, or more
likely for long term useage a cron job running every so often.</p> <p>An
example crontab line for polling every 15 minutes would be:</p>
<pre><code> */15 * * * * /usr/sbin/uucico -s sdf</code></pre>
<h2 id="testing">Testing your config</h2>
<pre><code>uucico -s sdf
uulog -10</code></pre>
<p>Check the log; output like this is a good sign:</p>
<pre><samp>
uucico sdf - (2013-08-09 01:00:05.613221) Login successful
uucico sdf - (2013-08-09 01:00:07.80 3221) Handshake successful (protocol 't')
uucico sdf - (2013-08-09 01:00:07.98 3221) Call complete (2 seconds 0 bytes 0 bps)
