NAME

  uutry	- Tries	to contact remote system with debugging	on

SYNOPSIS

  uutry	[system]

DESCRIPTION

  The uutry command is a shell that invokes uucico to call a remote site,
  system.  Debugging is	turned on (level 9).  The debugging output is put
  into the file	/tmp/system.  A	tail -f	on this	file is	executed so that the
  debugging output is printed on the terminal during execution.	 Typing	the
  Interrupt key	sequence gives control back to the terminal while uucico con-
  tinues to run, putting its output in /tmp/system.

  The uutry command overrides any retry	period for a remote system and will
  attempt to establish a connection immediately.

  The output file, /tmp/system is overwritten each time	uutry is executed to
  system.

FILES

  /usr/lib/uucp/Systems
