NAME

  uucpd	- Manages communications between the uucp program and TCP/IP

SYNOPSIS

  /usr/sbin/uucpd

DESCRIPTION

  The uucpd daemon enables uucp	connections through the	Transmission Control
  Protocol (TCP)/Internet Protocol (IP). This daemon handles the login of
  uucp connections and starts uucico to	process	the uucp requests.

  The uucpd daemon is started by the inetd daemon. Make	sure that the entry

  the inetd daemon.
