Before trying the first UUCP connection request to a remote system, the connection should be tested with cu(1bnu) to ensure that it can be dialed and logged into manually. (This is also a useful method for establishing the format of login chat scripts.)
Once a successful log in has been established, use uucico(1Mbnu) to test that the chat scripts are correct and that a successful log in can be made automatically.
You can use Uutry(1Mbnu) to perform the testing. Uutry is a shell that invokes uucico -x to provide debugging information. See ``Using Uutry to debug uucp'' and ``Testing outgoing cu and uucp functionality'', and uucico(1Mbnu) for more information.
In addition, uucico writes messages into a log file for each transfer. Refer to ``Viewing the log files'' for how to view the logfiles of uucico and Uutry transactions with the Dialup Systems Manager.
See ``BNU troubleshooting'' for advice on troubleshooting the connection.
To test a connection with Uutry (or cu) using the Dialup Systems Manager:
Different amounts of debugging information are displayed depending on the level: 1 gives the least amount, and 10 the most. The default level is 5 which usually gives enough information to locate the connection problem.
