I'm sure this has been asked a zillion times so I searched for hours before
posting this. How can there be so little documentation on this.

Point me to what to read.

rsh is good:

[g3p:~] smith% rsh -l a1012
{a1012 at}

rsync not good:

[g3p:~] smith% rsync -av a1012 at sync/
rsync: open connection using rsh -l a1012 rsync
    --server --sender -vlogDtpr . kkk.txt Connection refused
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at


Don't worry about the rsh thing I'm only going to have it on till I sync up
one huge directory.
