1 Hi all,
3 I am trying to get an rsync server running on my Gentoo server box in
4 order to run backups to the server from my other machines. I have a
5 very simple rsyncd.conf file, (see below), and from what I can tell, I
6 should be able to rsync some files across from a different box.
8 The command I am using to rsync from a different box is:
10 rsync -avz test.xml
12 I have also tried the following with the same results:
14 rsync test.xml
16 The result is that I am continually prompted for a password. As far as
17 I can tell from the rsyncd.conf no password should be required (which
18 is fine as the rsync port cannot be reached from outside the
19 intranet).
21 The rsyncd:
23 # This line is required by the /etc/init.d/rsyncd script
24 pid file = /var/run/
25 use chroot = yes
26 read only = false
27 log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log
29 # Simple example for enabling your own local rsync server
30 [rsync]
31 path = /srv/rsync
32 comment = Main Rsync Server
34 Any help appreciated.
