SCO Unix Serial Communications and UUCP


Some material is very old and may be incorrect today

© December 2003 (various)

This article is from a FAQ concerning SCO operating systems. While some of the information may be applicable to any OS, or any Unix or Linux OS, it may be specific to SCO Xenix, Open There is lots of Linux, Mac OS X and general Unix info elsewhere on this site: Search this site is the best way to find anything.

SCO Unix UUCP frequently has to resend packets

This is an ancient post with no relevance to modern systems.

If you are using a modem with error correction and/or data compression, or if you are making a long-distance connection, there are delays inherent in your connection which may cause UUCP to timeout and resend packets. You may need to increase the packet timeout.

See also the section above on problems in which UUCP can transfer small files but not larger ones.

Computers have been taught to distrust each other and will reject attempted connections most of the time. Nowadays, most computers and firewalls are utterly rude about it: it would be like asking someone to dance and having them ignore you as though you were invisible and inaudible. (Tony Lawrence)
