Cheers, Dave

Be aware that using a rsync daemon and the associated complexity is
totally optional.

I always just use plain old rsync on the client. If there is not a
rsync server available on the remote machine, it uses ssh to connect
to the remote and fire up an instance of rsync on that end and
communications goes from there.

Takes zero upfront config assuming you have ssh logins available.


Many thanks for the replies to my query.
Not that I understand much of it, but I will study the man page, and hope
I get more insight.

If you found this confusing, avoid the daemon mode unless you
absolutely need it.

Are you trying to rsync between 2 directories on one computer, or
between 2 computers?

If 2:

Can you ssh between the 2 machines?

Is rsync installed on both machines?
