backuppc rsync backups on different ports
Posted on 2008-11-03
I have installed backuppc 126.96.36.199 and have configured the backup firstname.lastname@example.org. ssh port for it is 22
i have configured client email@example.com ssh port for it is 22
what i want to do is have backup pc use rsync on a different port. i want the backup server to use ssh port 100
and the client machine to use ssh port 200
I have looked at rsyncd in the man pages and from my understanding it will leave a password file on the machine, i dont think i want that.
right now with ssh port at 22 all backups are working fine. but i want to change the ports to what i have put above.
