Large-datagram hop-by-hop delivery mechanism

This system is called UUCP :slight_smile:


to the original poster:

as much as people like to laugh about UUCP, it still works.
UUCP over TCP/IP should do the trick. why not?

if you expect that it is often likely that there will be _no_
routed path between source and destination hosts, and that
queue-next-closest-available is what you want, i'd say UUCP
is exactly your solution.

smtp has way too much of what you don't need.


Third-ed. UUCP still works. At my previous place we used to sync the
RADIUS servers by having the write-only-master (yes!) send updates to
the Ascend facing RADIUS servers. They were never out of sync for more
than a couple of second when the network was OK.

In case you run an OS that has something old and creepy, look at
Taylor-UUCP ( last time I looked).
