You don't run rsyncd at all. Rather use it like

export RSYNC_RSH=ssh
rsync -avH --partial --delete source_dir user@host:remote_dir

rsync will launch ssh and execute rsync --server on the remote side.


Ok I could be misreading but my understanding was on the remote server

of track do I need more caffeine :-)

Sorry Coffee was the answer sorted out
