Rsync between windows 2003 server and fc9 and fc9 to fc9 tutorial

Hello, I was wondering is there any tutorial for setting up Rsync between Windows 2003 server and FC9? I also will need to setup Rsync between FC9 and FC9. I already have looked at most of the google responses for Rsync including the one for SAMBA. Im afraid the information seems vague to me and will not be able to complete a configuration based onthe instructions I have found.

Can someone help point me in the right direction? A step by step tutorial would be great

Cwrsync alone won't be enough. You would miss SSH.
I found the solution because i currently use this config.

1-Setup a cygwin environment on Windows Server 2003. Install on it just OpenSSH,tcp_wrappers and rsync.

2-Modify your cygwin.bat:
@echo off
set CYGWIN=binmode tty ntsec
C:
chdir \cygwin\bin
bash --login -i

3-run from inside cygwin ssh-host-config and answer yes to all the questions, reading carefully

4-OpenSSH will be installed as a Service. Run it with "net start sshd" or "cygrunsrv -S sshd"

5- Now create, always from within cygwin environment, a /etc/rsyncd.conf file and edit like this:
[modulename]
   path = /cygdrive/c/path/to/backupdir   <---- if you want to backup everything, put just /cygdrive/c/
   comment = System Backup
   list = yes
   read only = yes <-this is if you want to backup FROM here and don't want to modify files

6-Start a rsync daemon by typing:
rsync --daemon --no-detach

7-Connect to it by typing

rsync -aze ssh privilegeduser@host::modulename /path/to/destination

and you are set.
