Rsync on two WinXP Machines: how?
Thu Oct 16 09:19:00 GMT 2008
Dave, thanks for the hints. I found there's no rsyncd.conf on my remote PC so
I created an empty one and now the rsync is listing on the remote PC:
> rsync --daemon --no-detach -v -v -v -v --log-file=logbuch.txt
> tail -f logfile.txt
2008/10/16 09:30:30  rsyncd version 3.0.4 starting, listening on port 873
On the local PC I finally can make rsync to connect to the remote rsync
(daemon), but I'm not getting results, ie a "[local PC] rsync Remote::"
doesn't show any files.
Do I have to configure "modules" on the remote PC? I hoped not because it
means the local PC's rsync scripts are not flexible anymore, but testwise I
did so: Remote PC's rsyncd.conf reads for example:
path = /folder/
A "[local PC] rsync Remote::" does list the entry "modul". However a
"[local PC] resync Remote::modul" does report an error message, something
like "chown (?) root" access problem. (I forgot to wrote down the exact
What could that be?
The user on the remote Windows who startet "rsync --daemon" via Autostart has
access rights to the "/folder/.
