OK, I should have mentioned this earlier, and I forgot. I don't have
rsh on [either] system because I've been told over and over that it's
insecure (or was that something else?). Anyway, I think that's before
my time, or maybe not. All I've ever know are telnet, then ssh, so
that's what I immediately stuck to when rsync.

I'm now wondering how I'm going to mirror anything unattended without
having a valid ssh login/password in a file some where. On top of
that, -e ssh renders rsyncd.conf useless (hosts access, auth users,
etc.). :-\
