It seems that, when uucico fails for some reason, it writes a time limit
in the file /var/spool/uucp/.Status/seunet telling how long it will be
until it should be allowed to try to call again. The more times in a row
that uucico fails, the higher the time limit. Most calls to my uucp
provider (Swipnet in Sweden, by the way) do not get through, and the time
limit can end up so large that the uucp feed stalls for several days.
Is there any way I can change the way this time limit is decided? I
actually want it to be very low (just a couple of minutes, or even zero)
instead of higher when most calls don't get through. I know the best way
to get around the problem would be to get a provider who has enough
modems, and I'm lookin at that too.
I am running Solaris 2.2 on a Sun Sparcstation IPX.
