The OP wanted to rsync local directories to a remote backup host. The
biggest (IMHO) drawback of rsnapshot is that it can't do precisely that.
It can rsync from remote to local, but for obvious reasons I don't want
to give the backup host root access to the host.

Or is there a trick to rsnapshot to store the snapshots on remote?
