I'm not sure about uucp... I've not seen it used or even mentioned for a long time. Personally, I'd use scp, which has the advantage of encrypting authentication and data over the network, although that might not be something you care about, and there is an overhead in terms of CPU usage.

Why don't you use scp for copying files?
