 Rsync password --password-file format
Author: Geoff 
Date:   02-06-03 08:54

Hi there,

This might seem like a silly question, but what format is the password file used with the --password-file command?

I've exported RSYNC_PASSWORD=<password>, with no luck and put a plain-text password in /etc/rsync.pass, and chmod'd it to 640

then using the parameter --password-file /etc/rsync.pass
It -still- asks for the password.
(btw I am using -rsh='ssh -l <username>' to run the remote shell command... each time I run it, I get a
Password:

prompt.

Any thoughts?

-Geoff
