How important is it to type "make install" when I don't wish for the
compiled program install into its default location. I only want it to
be in in the compiled directory and read rsyncd.conf file.
So when I ran 2.6.6 under "sudo ./rsync --daemon
--config=/etc/rsyncd.conf" under RHEL 3, I basically get the same error
I got rid of "hosts allow =" line and I still get "malformed address"
in the rsync.log file. Then a deny of connection from X private
sudo ./rsync -e ssh --archive --sparse --compress --update --progress
--stats -vv --dry-run jonachen at dev1::testdir .
opening connection using --server --sender -vvunlogDtprSz . testdir
@ERROR: access denied to testdir from stage02.foo.com (10.10.10.11)
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at
