Hi All

I tried to find out in the man page about what is the valid character we
can use in module name in rsyncd.conf but failed. Anyone knows?

Anyway, here is a bug.

I defines a module with abc/def as name.

$ rsync lab11-101::

this one show the module name, but when i try to use it.

$ rsync vpn lab11-101::abc/def
@ERROR: Unknown module 'abc'
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at
main.c(1383) [sender=2.6.9]
