rsync, rsyncd and ssh
Posted on 2006-10-24
I user rsync for synching two servers and works fine but I'm not familar with rsyncd and rsyncd.conf files.
1)What should I learn about these two ? as daemon and the configuration file?
2)What happens if one of the two servers I user for rsync doesn't have rsync installed.Let's say I send files from machine A to machine B. My rsync is on A. Do I need a rsync on machine B as well?
3)What happens if I don't have ssh on machine B? can I still transfer my files to machine B?
4)When do I have to user rsyncd.conf file?
