uucpd


NAME
     in.uucpd, uucpd - UUCP server

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/sbin/in.uucpd [-n]

DESCRIPTION
     in.uucpd is the server for supporting UUCP connections  over
     networks.

     in.uucpd is invoked by inetd(1M) when a UUCP  connection  is
     established,  that is, a connection to the port indicated in
     the "uucp" service specification, and executes the following
     protocol. See services(4):

     1.  The server prompts with login:. The  uucico(1M)  process
         at the other end must supply a username.


     2.  Unless the username refers to an account without a pass-
         word, the server then prompts with Password:. The uucico
         process at the other end must supply  the  password  for
         that account.


     If the username is not valid, or is valid but refers  to  an
     account that does not have /usr/lib/uucp/uucico as its login
     shell, or if the password is not the  correct  password  for
     that  account, the connection is dropped.  Otherwise, uucico
     is run, with the user ID, group  ID,  group  set,  and  home
     directory  for  that account, with the environment variables
     USER and  LOGNAME set to the specified username, and with  a
     -u  flag  specifying  the  username.  Unless  the -n flag is
     specified,   entries    are    made    in    /var/adm/utmpx,
     /var/adm/wtmpx,   and  /var/adm/lastlog  for  the  username.
     in.uucpd  must  be  invoked  by  a  user  with   appropriate
     privilege  (usually root) in order to be able to verify that
     the password is correct.

SECURITY
     in.uucpd uses pam(3PAM) for authentication, account  manage-
     ment, and session management.  The PAM configuration policy,
     listed through /etc/pam.conf, specifies the  modules  to  be
     used  for  in.uucpd.  Here  is  a partial pam.conf file with
     entries for uucp  using  the  UNIX  authentication,  account
     management, and session management module.


     uucp    auth requisite          pam_authtok_get.so.1
     uucp    auth required           pam_dhkeys.so.1
     uucp    auth required           pam_unix_auth.so.1

     uucp    account requisite       pam_roles.so.1
     uucp    account required        pam_projects.so.1
     uucp    account required        pam_unix_account.so.1

     uucp      session required      pam_unix_session.so.1



     If there are no entries  for  the  uucp  service,  then  the
     entries  for  the  "other" service will be used. If multiple
     authentication modules are listed,  then  the  peer  may  be
     prompted for multiple passwords.

FILES
     /var/adm/utmpx          accounting



     /var/adm/wtmpx          accounting



     /var/adm/lastlog        time of last login

DIAGNOSTICS
     All diagnostic messages  are  returned  on  the  connection,
     after which the connection is closed.

     user read               An error occurred while reading  the
                             username.

     passwd read             An error occurred while reading  the
                             password.



     Login incorrect.        The username is invalid or refers to
                             an  account with a login shell other
                             than  /usr/lib/uucp/uucico,  or  the
                             password is not the correct password
                             for the account.




NOTES
     The in.uucpd service is managed by  the  service  management
     facility, smf(5), under the service identifier:

     svc:/network/uucp

     Administrative actions on this service,  such  as  enabling,
     disabling,  or  requesting  restart,  can be performed using
     svcadm(1M). Responsibility  for  initiating  and  restarting
     this  service  is delegated to inetd(1M). Use inetadm(1M) to
     make configuration changes and to view configuration  infor-
     mation for this service. The service's status can be queried
     using the svcs(1) command.

     The pam_unix(5) module is no longer supported. Similar func-
     tionality     is     provided    by    pam_authtok_check(5),
     pam_authtok_get(5),   pam_authtok_store(5),   pam_dhkeys(5),
     pam_passwd_auth(5),  pam_unix_account(5),  pam_unix_auth(5),
     and pam_unix_session(5).
