Hi Jim,
Thanks for your reply.
Read the man rsync...even printed it....but well it looks a lot like shorthand 
to me. 
Kindly some pointers if other howto or whatever excist. I did research as best 
I could..but....maybe ....i don't have enough between the ears??

Rsync over ssh...will only once in a while when changes done on gateway.

Kindly an example as per my situation. When in plain english I usually get 
along.......even improve once in a while.........but the choice is yours.
