Of course you can.  It's done all the time.
Set up your rsyncd.conf in /etc under cygwin, start the server (rsync 
--daemon), and read from it.
If you've already done this, send more details (your rsync.conf, output of 
"ps ax" after starting the server, "rsync localhost::" output, etc.).

Can anyone help me with rsync.  I'm trying to set up rsync on a windows nt
4.0 box so i can do off site backup with linux.  I followed the
instruction from and i have rsync working on windows nt.
when i tried to use rsync with linux to connect to the windows box i get a
error invalid module.  Is there anything i can do to get rsync to work so
i can do off site backup.  thanks Bill Nash
