thanks, but actually the same users want to use rsync without the wrapper and it will cause inproper transfer.

You could simply create a dedicated group, set up permissions to your script, and add only the desired remote users to that group.

Hi all,
I have an rsyncd installed on a host and I want to use it from a lot of clients. This rsync is not invoked directly but there is a shell script wrapper co set up parameters and environment.
My problem is that I do not want to allow any other rsync to be able to connect to the daemon. Is there any way to implement such feature?
