4.1 Remote Execution

4.1 Remote Execution

Some networks permit direct remote command execution. On these networks, news may be forwarded by spooling the rnews command with the article on the standard input. For example, if the remote system is called "remote", news would be sent over a UUCP link with the command "uux - remote!rnews", and on a Berknet, "net -mremote rnews". It is important that the article be sent via a reliable mechansim, normally involving the possibility of spooling, rather than direct real-time remote execution. This is because, if the remote system is down, a direct execution command will fail, and the article will never be delivered. If the article is spooled, it will eventually be delivered when both systems are up.
