There is not a simple answer to your question.  Whole volumes have been written on uucp.  O'Reilly & Assoc has a good one (see http://www.ora.com for ordering info).

Sun has a writeup on their site which explains how to setup uucp on Solaris 2.2; 2.5 shouldn't be much different:

To use UUCP you got to insytall the Taylor UUCP packafge or any other UUCP package. You laso need support for UUCP in your sendmail.cf and your sendmail binary, I suggest you read the O'Reilly UUCP and Sendmail books.

Here is an entry of Permissions file:


MACHINE=remote-machine LOGNAME=uremote MYNAME=your-machine \
COMMANDS=uucp \
READ=/usr/spool/uucppublic:/usr/hack/tmp \
WRITE=/usr/spool/uucppublic:/usr/hack/tmp \
SENDFILES=yes REQUEST=yes


The MACHINE value is the name of the remote machine.
The LOGNAME value is the login name the remote machine
will use. Note that it is eight characters or less. You
should create a user called "uremote" (or whatever) in /etc/passwd.
The MYNAME is what your machine calls itself. The remote machine will need to know this for his configuration.
READ, WRITE are directories allowed to be accessed.
SENDFILES, REQUEST says that remote-machine can upload
and download.

This is just a generic example.
I strongly suggest you get the O'Reily book, since there is
a lot more options and security issues involved. And there
a quite a few files that you need to mess with to get it working.
