Hi Rajiv,

from rsync(1):
| Some  paths  on the remote server may require authentication. If so then
| you will receive a password prompt when you connect. You can avoid the
| password prompt by setting the environment  variable RSYNC_PASSWORD to
| the password you want to use or using the --password-file option. This
| may be useful when scripting rsync.
