Thanks for the follow-up :-)

There is a firewall involved, and it's over an unsecured network, so
I'm not sure using just the rsync encryption without any additional
encryption or authentication (since it's automated) will be possible.

For the time being, I've renamed the file on the sending side so as to
correspond with what I want it to be on the receiving side, and it's
working okay.

Why can't I have complete flexibility AND total security? :-)
