uuxqt — execute remote uucp or uux command requests


/usr/lbin/uucp/uuxqt [-s system] [-x debug_level]


The uucp commands, including uuxqt, are targeted for removal from HP-UX; see the WARNINGS below.

uuxqt executes remote job requests generated by use of the uux command (see uux(1)). uux generates X. files and places them in the spool directory, where uuxqt searches for them. For each X. file, uuxqt determines whether the required data files are available and accessible, and if file commands are permitted for the requesting system. The Permissions file is used to validate file accessibility and command execute permission. Then uuxqt performs execution of the commands.

Two environment variables are set before the uuxqt command is executed: UU_MACHINE is the machine that sent the previous job and UU_USER is the user who sent the job. These can be used in writing commands that remote systems can execute to provide information, auditing, or restrictions.

uuxqt recognizes the following options:

-s system

Execute commands on the specified system.

-x debug_level

Produce debugging output on standard output. debug_level is a single digit between 0 and 9. The higher the number, the more detailed debugging information returned.


Use of uucp commands, including uuxqt, is discouraged because they are targeted for removal from HP-UX. Use ftp(1) or rcp(1) instead.
