Configuring UUCP for modems
Correct entries in the UUCP configuration files
are vital when using cu and UUCP.
This also applies when SCO SLIP and
SCO PPP are configured to use incoming and
outgoing connections that use UUCP
(it does not apply to dedicated serial line connections).
The Systems file is changed by the DialUp/Outgoing Manager and the
Devices file is changed by both the Modem Manager and Serial Manager.
However you may need to edit these files by hand to be able to use
cu, the UUCP utilities, and SLIP.
To configure the UUCP files:
Edit /etc/uucp/Systems to ensure that the correct
line speed is specified for your modem.
for more information.
For dialing, both cu and UUCP use a dialer
defined by an entry in /etc/uucp/Devices.
The dialer can be:
a symbolic link to atdialer
together with a suitable configuration file
in /etc/uucp/default, see
This is the preferred way of configuring a modem
an entry in the /etc/uucp/Dialers file, see
