 Incorrect Usage of SSH transport
Author: Massimo Lusetti 
Date:   06-08-01 18:57


You should separate the PATH from HOSTNAME with only one ':' to use SSH otherwise rsync still using it method to transport from server to clients.

Another error is that using the option --password-file is not useful when using ssh transport.
Quoting from man:
"This option allows you to provide a password in a file for accessing a remote rsync server. Note that`this option is only useful when accessing a rsync server using the built in transport, not when using a remote shell as the transport."

Regards,
Massimo

Right you are. Thank you. I'll correct the article.

DOH! Thank you. I've updated the article. How's it look now?

Combining RSA authentication built in SSH with rsync, provides a very secure way to keep file trees in sync.

Perhaps your article can point this out, and possibly reference an article I believe you had about using SSH in this precise way.

Regards.
