Newbie to rsync

Look again.  it's not finding rsync on machine2.  He's doing remote-to-remote, though he's on machine2 already.  I've already replied to him in detail, concerning paths and rsync syntax/behaviour.  If he fixes the path on machine2 or gives the
--rsync-path= directive, then, he'll rsync to a local directory named "machine3:", which probably doesn't exist, and certainly isn't what he wants.

Looks like it's not finding rsync on machine3.
