uuxqt(1)							     uuxqt(1)


  uuxqt	- Executes remote command requests


  uuxqt	[-ssystem] [-xdebug_level]

  The uuxqt program executes specified commands	on designated remote systems.


      Specifies	the name of the	remote system.	Use this option	only when
      starting uuxqt manually.	The remote system name is supplied internally
      when uuxqt is started automatically.

      Displays debugging information on	the screen of the local	system;
      debug_level is a single digit between 0 and 9.  The higher the number
      specified, the more detailed the debugging information displayed.


  When uux is entered by a user, the program creates the necessary C.* (Com-
  mand), D.* (Data), and X.* (Execute) files and places	them in	the spooling
  directory on the designated remote system.  The uux command then calls the
  uucico daemon	which in turn, tries to	contact	the designated system to
  deliver the files.  When the files are transferred, uuxqt executes the com-
  mands	on the designated system.

  The uuxqt program searches the spool directories on the designated system
  for the X.* (Execute)	files whose names indicate that	they were sent from
  another system.  The command checks each X.* file for	the following:

    +  All of the required D.* (Data) files must be available and accessible.

    +  File commands must be permitted for the requesting system.

  The uuxqt program can	be executed manually by	a user with superuser
  privileges.  This daemon is executed automatically by	the uudemon.hour
  shell	script,	which is started periodically by cron.


      Lock file	which prevents multiple	use of device

      Limits number of remote command executions
