UUCP

(UNIX to UNIX CoPy) A Unix utility that copies a file from one computer to another. It was widely used for mail transfer. Unlike TCP/IP, which is a routable communications protocol, UUCP provides a point-to-point transmission where a user at one Unix computer dials up and establishes a session with another Unix computer. See bang path.
