cygrunsrv, rsync, w2k

The hints from Vince helped jump start my feeble brain. Here are my steps to install and start rsync on Windows 2000.

This is the working installation for the service:

$ cygrunsrv -I rsyncd -d "RSYNC Daemon" -f "rsync file transfer service" \
  -p /usr/bin/rsync  -a '--config=/etc/rsyncd.conf --daemon --no-detach' \
  -e CYGWIN='binmode tty ntsec' --user=Administrator

Note the --user=Administrator

Before installing the service make sure to have the configuration and variable files and paths permissions correct.

1 Delete previous rsyncd.* files from unsuccessful attempts
