I'm a student trying to get rsync working correctly on
my WinXP machine.
My rsync server works perfectly through cygwin.
BUT, when I try to add authentication, I get the message:
@ERROR auth failed on module Mobilesync
rsync connection unexpectedly closed (94 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at
This is the command which causes the message:
rsync -Ppvtl rsync://email@example.com/Mobilesync/Test1.txt .
(i get the same error even without the "mobile@"
This is my rsyncd.conf:
use chroot = false
strict modes = false
path = /cygdrive/c/cygwin/var/mobilesync
comment = Mobilesync Test Directory
read only = false
auth users = mobile
secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.secrets
and my rsyncd.secrets:
I've tried all the suggestions posted to others in usegroups.
Nothing works. Suggestions?
