Hi guys, I have a simple question regarding using rsync when one has
read-only files on the src machine. My situation is the following: 

I have two machines, call then A and B. I'm using rsync on B to download
from A (I'm running rsync in daemon mode on A from inetd.conf). The rsyncing
on B works fine except for one problem: when I run rsync on B to do the
downloading from A, I get permission denied for files on A that have mode

Is there a way to get rsync to download all files, irrespective of their

Thanks in advance,

The manual said install Windows 98 or I installed Linux! what if my password is the same as my dog's name. My dog's name is
m7u#$12a and I change it every week..........sit m7u#$12a sit....m7u#$12a
roll over, that's a good dog.

When a computer from Sun Microsystems crashes does that mean the sun has
gone down or is that a sun set?....and when it reboots, do we call that a
sun rise?
