         Unix to Unix Copy Protocol (Unix)

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  Unix to Unix Copy
      (uucp) A Unix utility program and
     protocol that allows one Unix system to send files to
     another via a serial line which may be a cable going
     directly from one machine's serial port to another's or may
     involve a modem at each end of a telephone line.
     Software is also available to allow uucp to work over
     Ethernet though there are better alternatives in this case,
     e.g. FTP or rcp for file transfer, SMTP for electronic
     mail or NNTP for news.
     The term is now also used to describe the large international
     network which uses UUCP to pass Usenet news and
     electronic mail, also known as "UUCPNET".
     Unix manual page: uucp(1).
