In Reply to: [gentoo-user] rsyncd problem... by Anthony Roy
1 Firstly - my apologies for the messed up titles of my replies. I

3 (probably because I was using a different 'from' address than my gmail
4 address). Anyway I have to use the pieces of sh** Outlook and Exchange

9 I've sorted the problem I was having. It was of course me
10 mis-understanding how rsync works. I was not after simply connecting
11 to my server using rsync via ssh, but setting it up as an rsync
12 server...
14 It turns out that I had the server set up correctly (and it seems it
15 is simple to restrict access to our main PC's IP address so that
16 unwanted intruders - such as the kids on their PC ;-) - are kept out.
18 It seems I was using the wrong client-dside command:
20 > rsync -avz test.xml
22 should have been
24 rsync -avz test.xml
26 i.e. with two colons!
28 Cheers,
