Unless told otherwise, rsync uses rsh to contact the remote system.=20
Another popular option is ssh. Both of these protocols use the logged-in=20
username, unless specified otherwise. What rsync really does is "rsh=20
remotehost rsync --server-and-other-undocumented-options". If you can't=20
"rsh server rsync --version", rsync won't work with rsh. Same with ssh. I =
think that tif you're going to an actual rsync server, the rsync daemon,=20
started with 'rsync --daemon', it offers your current username if the=20
rsyncd asks(anon rsyncd is more common).
In your question "The other way around is allow rsh without unix user speci=
fied in the=20
command (without -l user) but i dont kwon how to make it work!"... The way =
to get rsh to work without specifying the user is to have the=20
invoking user exist on the target machine. That's very basic unix.
