Here's what I use, Don:
I use uucp's cu on a 4.1.3_U1 (and formerly 4.1.1_U1 sun3).
Outgoing only device:
corona:[/blue/homes/cowell] ls -alg /dev/cua0
crw-r--r-- 1 uucp staff 12, 128 Mar 28 14:01 /dev/cua0
Here's the script I use:
corona:[/blue/homes/cowell] cat amanda/notify/notify.me
# Corona the machine the modem is on
rsh corona cu $1
Here's one way I use it (with my mh .maildelivery file), I have a script
monitor our backup software logs and mail me if there's a problem.
: <-- irrelevant stuff deleted
subject "AMANDA PROBLEM" ^ R "/blue/homes/cowell/amanda/notify/notify.me bp-am-amcheck"
And lastly, the /etc/uucp/Systems file with things I can call:
# cuuxb Any ACU 1200 chicago8101242 in:--in: nuucp word: panzer
# See the System and Network Administration Manual for details
# Andy Cowell's home number
home Any ACU 2400 8=6738892
# Andy Cowell's beeper number
bp Any ACU 2400 8=6318483,,,,
# First n char's must be unique...
bp-am-amcheck Any ACU 2400 8=6318483,,,,000100001
bp-am-runtime Any ACU 2400 8=6318483,,,,000100666
bp-am-disklist Any ACU 2400 8=6318483,,,,000100665
bp-wakeup Any ACU 2400 8=6318483,,,,111101111
bp-problem Any ACU 2400 8=6318483,,,,524710666
^^^ ^ ^ -This is the code that shows on beeper
||| |- Commas tell it to wait (give time for
||| |- service to pick up phone)
|||- The actual pager number
||- = means wait until dial tone, I think
|- Get outside our pbx
This works fine for me. I hope it helps!
