uustat -p on linux not showing any processes

Trying to port our production environment from SCO to linux. One key functions of our production server is our modem bank for accessing servers via dialup. I have uucp setup and I am able to make outbound calls without an issue, but need to be able to modify our script to detect if someone is already dialed into a particular server. On SCO we used uustat -p to check the modem number dialed, and the username to display on the screen if another user tried dialing the same number.

Without completely rewriting our script and the uucp locking system, any ideas how to get uustat working?

Did you try

uustat -q

or

uustat -s systemname

or

uustat -m

?

uustat -q shows nothing (same as uustat -p)
uustat -m returns the following error:
uustat: opendir (.Status): No such file or directory

Seems that uucp is not correctly installed.

The directories under /var/spool/uucp, like .Status must exist!

Had to add the uucp lockdir to /etc/uucp/config and it's working now.
