Sorry if the question has been asked before and already replied then
just point me rather sending flames as it has already been an extremely
bad day.

This is what I want to do

I am placing a webserver on DMZ ( apache is running
chrooted via compartment the webpages are located at $CHROOT/webhome the
directory and files are owned by wwwrun.nogroup

I want to be able to run rsync to update the web pages however I only
want to open the minimum number of ports in the firewall.
The question is how can I force rsync to except communication from ssh
only rather than from rsync port.
