Urgently!! HPUX v.11.23 can not receive file from Linux via UUCP automatically

 

On HPUX, i always have to manual execute "Uutry" command to receive file from Linux.

 

I need someone to help suggest about HPUX v.11.23 to automatic receive file from Linux via UUCP.

 

 

I found same problem as below link.

Any reason you aren't using something more modern?

Hey;

 

>>I need someone to help suggest about HPUX v.11.23 to automatic receive file from Linux 

 

Switch to a protocol that was developed after the invention of networking.  That argument *is* winnable.  I know, because I've done it.  We had a system migration a year or so back in which the application team was insisting on using uucp.  I basically said "no" and, with the backing of my boss, we held our ground.  Emphasize that uucp is an unsupported protocol that has absolutely no security what so ever.  You want to use secure shell with public key authentication (assuming this is scripted) to avoid password prompts.  The script updates should be relatively easy.  Anywhere there's a uucp call, simply replace it with a properly formatted scp call.

 

I know it's not a direct answer to your question; however, it is the right answer...

 

Hope that helps.
