Hi all,

Suppose I have remote rsync server, named as:  And I 
want to finding some specific files/directories from it.

To do this, I must let my local rsync client to do a traversing among all 
of its modules and the corresponding sub-directories.  Say, if I want to 
find all of the `foo/file' on this rsync server, i.e., a file named file 
which is located under the foo directory.  How can I do this thing within 
bash/shell script with the invoking on rsync client?
