I have a rsync server set up.

Can i push data from the server to another machine
instead of pulling data from that machine.

when i try to do that i get this error.

mkdir tohost:/tmp ; No such file or directory.

But the directory exists. This is the command i

rsync -avz --rsync-path=/usr/bin/rsync 
fromhost::test tohost:/tmp

This works fine if iam logged onto "tohost" and pull
data i.e

rsync -avz --rsync-path=/usr/bin/rsync 
fromhost::test /tmp

This works fine if i do it without the server

rsync -avz --rsync-path=/usr/bin/rsync
 /disk1/tmp tohost:/tmp

I execute the above command logged on to the

let me know if iam doing anything wrong.
