You left out the "::".  Also, the syntax for server mode is slightly
different -- you need to refer to a module name on the server.  So, if
you have an rsync daemon configured and running on your 217.127.* host,
you could use this to see the module names:


Check into the rsync.conf man page for how to configure a module, give
it a password, etc.

If you don't want to run an rsync daemon, you need to work on the angle
of getting ssh to let you connect without a password instead.  See the
ssh-keygen man page for the easy way to go.
