hey folks,
rsync is a great tool!  i use it mostly to sync up Documents between several 
machines.  i use it like this:
rsync --progress -vrae ssh /home/bill/Graphics/ 
bill at vortex:/home/rmckown/Graphics/

the problem i have, is i want to specifiy a specific ssh port other than 22.
i want to connect to a specific ssh server behind the firewall on the remote 

it would be nice to use the command like this:
rsync --progress -vrae ssh -p8022 /home/bill/Graphics/ 
bill at vortex:/home/bill/Graphics/

anyone have any ideas?
