--daemon doesn't take the ---exclude* options.  Put "exclude from = /etc/rsync.exclude" in your rsyncd.conf.

Subject:  Re: Exclude

Hi Folks,

I'm running rsync between an NT client and a Solaris 7 Server (Ver 2.4.6).

I'd like to be able to exclude the following directory:


but retrieve


My setup is:

     rsync -av -p -e rsync at server1.cna.com:/opt/IBMHTTPDLOG/

     rsync --daemon --exclude-from=/etc/rsync.exclude

What I get is *everything* including the contents of the dir ./archivelogs.
What is the proper syntax ? I've tried setting up my entry in rsync.exclude


I've also tried setting the server-side rsync daemon as --exclude
<blah-blah> to no avail.

Thanks in advance,
