Can one use rsync?



I’m wondering if its possible to use rsync? I’ve got ssh working - I’m assuming I’d have to have an rsync daemon running and attach to it remotely - maybe this is possible with ssh and port forwarding ???


You can, if you run it over SSH.

If you want useful replies, ask smart questions.


Thanks, I figured it out last night - searching for “rsync ssh backup” with Google got the answer. Pretty cool once you figure out which side to create the keys on. Somehow its counter-intuitive that you create them on the remote client and move the public key to the server. Still, whatever works!
