Hello -
I have normally been using rsync using only a single : in the command
line. What are the benefits of setting up an rsync server on the other
side using double colons :: ? Is it more efficient? 
Here is an example of what I use. The server 'iceland' is on the other
side of a WAN link. I'm not using an rsync.conf file.
rsync iceland://programs/ /journyx-backup/ --progress --stats --compress
--recursive --partial --archive -v
Thanks - Max
