Why not? I am confused.
If I do, as user1 knowing passwd user2
rsync -auvz /home/oub/sourcedir user2 at localhost:/media/disk/targetdir
I have copied the content of sourcedir to target dir on USB,
and owner (UID+GID) is now user2
But if as user1 on Laptop1 I do
rsync -auvz /home/oub/sourcedir /media/disk/targetdir
sudo chown -R user2 /media/disk/targetdir
sudo chgrp -R user2 /media/disk/targetdir
I obtain the same result
Anyhow the problem is from Laptop2 to the USB, I would need
user2 passwd. I think it is best to have the same UID+GID on

Because the connection is very unreliable, laptop 2 has a
dynamic IP, and I am paranoiac and don't want to have
in hosts.allow on Laptop1
