I have setup rsync as you suggestion for password authentication but
I get auth failed on module, see below.
$ rsync -vrtuz --password-file=~.rsyncpw --delete
projects at host.dyndns.org::projects /home/projects/
password file must not be other-accessible
continuing without password file
@ERROR: auth failed on module projects
-rw-rw-r-- 1 simpson simpson 8 Apr 29 22:51 .rsyncpw
On the server side:
uid = matt
gid = matt
auth users = projects
secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.secrets
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 29 May 8 16:27 /etc/rsyncd.secrets
Thanks for your help. Any clues?
>close on the rsyncd.conf: secrets file is module, not global, so you'll
