Handles communications between BNU and TCP/IP.
The uucpd daemon cannot be started from the command line. It is started by the inetd daemon.
The uucpd daemon is an internal program that enables users of systems linked by the Basic Networking Utilities (BNU) program to establish a TCP/IP connection to other systems linked over a Token-Ring, Ethernet, or other network.
The uucpd daemon is a subserver of the inetd daemon. The uucpd daemon must be running as a background process on all the networked systems before the BNU program can use TCP/IP system to communicate. If the uucpd daemon is not running, reconfigure the inetd daemon to start the uucpd daemon. Use the netstat command to find out if the uucpd daemon is running.
