can I use UUCP to download a file to a remote tape drive.
Desc: Customer had questions about moving a file from one system
to another using UUCP. Customer wanted to know if there was
a way to move a file from a remote system through a modem
to the tape drive of another system. Customer could get
file on system and also wanted to know how to move the file
from her system to the local tape drive.
Since you already have uucp set up you can do this quite
easily with uux:
uux "systemb!/usr/bin/tar -cvf /dev/rmt0 systema!sourcefile"
This command should be run on systema
It says basically "on system b run to command
tar -cvf /dev/rmt0 with an input file named sourcefile on
This might not work as desired for entire directories and you
may have to back up by absolute path name because of UUCP
