      uucpd  -	UUCP over TCP/IP server daemon


      uucpd is the server for supporting UUCP connections over TCP/IP

      uucpd is invoked by inetd(1M) when a UUCP connection is established
      (that is, a connection to the port indicated in the "uucp" service
      specification; see services(4)), and executes the following protocol:

	   1)	The server prompts with "login:", the uucico process at the
		other end must supply a username.

	   2)	Unless the username refers to an account without a password,
		the server then prompts with "Password:", the uucico process
		at the other end must supply the password for that account.

      If the username is not valid or is valid but refers to an account that
      does not have /usr/lbin/uucp/uucico as its login shell, or if the
      password is not the correct password for that account, the connection
      is dropped. Otherwise, uucico(1M) is run. Entries are made in
      /var/adm/wtmp traceable with who(1) and last(1).

      Only 'g' protocol for uucico is supported.

      All diagnostic messages are returned on the connection, after which
      the connection is closed.

      user read
	   An error occurred while reading the username.

      passwd read
	   An error occurred while reading the password.

      login incorrect
	   The username or the password is invalid or the user's login shell
	   for this account is not /usr/lbin/uucp/uucico.

      On Trusted Systems uucpd prohibits uucico to start if any of the
      following are true :

	   +  the login account is locked (several causes).

	   +  current time doesn't match existing time-of-day restrictions
	      for this account.

      Under such conditions uucpd will return the message login incorrect to
      the connection. The connection is then dropped.

      uucpd was developed by the University of California, Berkeley and HP.
