This option allows you to provide a password in a
file for accessing a remote rsync server. Note that
this option is only useful when accessing a rsync
server using the built in transport, not when using
a remote shell as the transport. The file must not
be world readable. It should contain just the pass-
word as a single line.
The password file option is only for a remote rsync server, not ssh.
You need to use one of the ssh methods to avoid prompting for password.
