Dear list,
I just started to play with rsync. It seems to provide an option to sync 
with an ssh enabled file server (I think win). I have no root rights ono 
the server, and I need to archive/sync with my win - based pc. The 
client runs just fine, but the transfer fails:

rsync: mkdir "/home/myuserfolder/backup" failed: No such file or 
directory (2)
rsync error: error in file IO (code 11) at main.c(529) [receiver=2.6.9]
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (8 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(453) 

Do I need to do something on the server? It seems that some people put 
some script on the server, but I am not sure whether that is the way to 
go when I have no root privileges.

Thanks heaps in advance.
