Dear Expert,

I'm very newbie with rsync and i just installed RSYNC
in both of my servers. Let say the server is ServerA
( and ServerB ( Rsync daemon runs
in server A. The rsycnd.conf is like this (i save this
file in /etc/rsyncd.conf):

uid             = rsync
gid             = rsync
use chroot      = no
max connections = 4
syslog facility = local5
auth users      = root
secrets file    = /etc/rsyncd.secrets
pid file        = /var/run/
        path    = /home/derix
        comment = testing rsync

and my secret file is like this:

I checked the process by typing ps -ef | grep rsync
and the result is like this:
root      5487     1  0 13:05 ?        00:00:00 rsync

When i try to download the data from ServerA to
ServerB,the password prompt occured. I use this
rsync -a -e ssh root at

My question is, how do i download the file
automatically without entering the password? Something
wrong with the configuration?
Please give me some advise.
Thank You.

best regards,
