Running rysnc on Windows requires Cygwin, but that doesn't mean you need
a full Cygwin installation. The best option, IMHO, is to install the
cwRsyncServer package from http://www.itefix.no/i2/node/10650. This
provides just what you need to run rsync. It also makes it easy to run
the rsync daemon as a Windows service. If you want to run rsync over
ssh you can install the copSSH package from the same site.
