This may seem odd, but I'm trying to start rsync in daemon mode from an
ssh connection... ie, something like this:
ssh host1 /usr/bin/rsync --daemon --port=9999 --config=/path/to/config.txt
the reason why is i need to start it on 40 machines and manually logging
into each one is a pain. even with copying and pasting. i'd rather
just write a shell script to do it in a loop.
anyway it doesn't work. it just prints
i'm assuming since "ssh host command" doesn't create a tty that rsync
gets confused and thinks it is already daemonized.
is there any workaround or do i have to just bite the bullet and do this
the nasty way.
