root access	(root by any name is UID 0)
can read and write anything anywhere

You might add stuff like
	list = false
	read only = true
depending on what access you need

What do this uid =0 anfd gid = 0 mean? Can it pose any security issues.



        path = /
        auth users = XXX
        secrets file = /usr/local/etc/rsyncd.secrets
        uid = 0
        gid = 0

Do You Yahoo!?
