4. UUCP Accounts

UUCP accounts allow for file transfers via direct serial connections or via modems.

Most of the parameters for a UUCP account should be filled in the same as a regular login account. See login if you need more information on login name, full name, user ID, and the mail settings.

You can't set the group for a UUCP user; all UUCP accounts are in the uucp group.

The default home directory for UUCP accounts is /var/spool/uucppublic; you can set this to a different directory if you use another place for UUCP file transfers.
