I have set up an Rsync server on FreeBSD 5.3 and plan
on having windows clients synchronize data to it.
Rsync running as a daemon works fine. I can
successfully copy data up to the server and view it
Also- I can connect via ssh and run rsync as well.
HOWEVER- I cannot connect "passwordless" with SSH and
then connect to the rsync daemon. The following
demonstartes what I would like to do:
rsync -av -e "ssh -l myusername"
rsyncusername at 184.108.40.206::modulename --password-file
When I run the above I successfully authenticate with
SSH but then I get an error that the rsyncd.conf
cannot be read. Permissions on the rsyncd.conf file
I have tried chown to rsync:rync the user the daemon
runs under as specified in my conf file.
I would like the have the granularity of using
I was somewhat content with just using ssh but ssh
wants to change the permissions on the upload
directory where others can rwx. I tried changing the
umask but apparently it is ignored when making an ssh
In addition- the local accounts on the server are
setup for scponly.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have been
googling and experimenting for over two weeks. I
believe everything is proper... :(
