5. Taylor UUCP Configuration Files

This chapter describes the configuration files accepted by the Taylor UUCP package if compiled with HAVE_TAYLOR_CONFIG set to 1 in `policy.h'.

The configuration files are normally found in the directory newconfigdir, which is defined by the `Makefile' variable `newconfigdir'; by default newconfigdir is `/usr/local/conf/uucp'. However, the main configuration file, `config', is the only one which must be in that directory, since it may specify a different location for any or all of the other files. You may run any of the UUCP programs with a different main configuration file by using the `-I' or `--config' option; this can be useful when testing a new configuration. When you use the `-I' option the programs will revoke any setuid privileges.
