 Re: rsync with password
Author: olyander

that doesnt make sense at first glance.... looks like syntax, i could be wrong.. ill have to test that out..



rsync -avz --delete /fullpath_of_directory_to_backup/ username@ip::fullpath_of_destination_directory --password-file /fullpath_to_passwordfile.

with this command, i would put a slash here: @ip:/fullpath_of_dest_dir,,, and not use ::

for example: when I use scp and passwrdless access, i know you need to use the form to a non home directory manual full path destination such as:

user@hostname:/whereever/your/dir/is

that just caught my eye, maybe thats causing the error? no slash?

Im going to be using rsync myself soon, as I currently use scp, and would like to automate my moving, copying, or backup of files over the net.

in the next day or so, let me see what i can find out...

till then, OlyAnder
