/usr/lbin/uucp/uucico [-x debug_level] [-d spool_directory]
uucico scans the /var/spool/uucp directories for work files. If such
files exist, a connection to a remote system is attempted using the
line protocol for the remote system specified in file
/etc/uucp/Systems. uucico then executes all requests for work and
logs the results.
uucico recognizes the following options:
-r1 Start uucico in the MASTER mode. The default is
-s system Do work only for the system specified by system.
If there is no work for system on the local spool
directory, initiate a connection to system to
determine if system has work for the local system.
This option must be used if -r1 is specified.
Search directory spool_directory instead of the
default spool directories (usually
-x debug_level Use debugging option. debug_level is an integer
in the range 1 through 9. More debugging

uucico is usually started by a local program such as cron, uucp, or
uuxqt (see cron(1M), uucp(1), and uuxqt(1M)). It when debugging
should a user initiate uucico directly.
When started by a local program, uucico is considered the MASTER and
attempts a connection to a remote system. If uucico is started by a
remote system, it is considered to be in SLAVE mode.
For the uucico connection to a remote system to be successful, there
must be an entry in the /etc/passwd file on the remote system of the
