>From what I can gather from googling, using rsync over ssh without a cipher is not possible since some changes to the openssh package.  Is this true?  I have been using a CPU friendly cipher but feel that it is best to use no cipher at all (secured network).

rsync -avxu --progress -e 'ssh -c arcfour128' /path/to/source/ user at server:/path/to/destination/

Thanks in advance!
