  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
