Basic - Setting up Rsync over the net
support at ideaworks.com

I've tried going thru the archives, but it's like looking for a
needle in a haystack. I've also tried the man page, but I don't
understand the syntax (not a native Unix user). I'm new to
rsync, and have managed to get our systems on a backup sched
with rsync in the office. That works great, and all is good.
My last task is to get rsync to pull the files off our
webserver, located at a data center, to our backup. I can't
seem to get the syntax right for this.
The inhouse looks like:
rsync OPTIONS "/cygdrive/c/Docs n Settings"
user at backupmachine:/cygdrive/c/backups/sourcename
With 'backupmachine' running an rsync daemon (boss set that up).
This is where I am with the internet command:
rsync OPTIONS /cygdrive/c/backups/sourcename2 :
user at server.on.internet.com:"/cygdrive/c/Dos n Settings"
Thank you for any help you can offer.
