I've never installed rsync on VMS, but don't forget that you
can use $ backup. It will work fine and will reproduce the
tree structure, but will only allow a single thread across the
network. That is, $ backup on the local system and output a
save_set on the remote end, you can then unpack the save_set on
the remote system.
