Paul: You generally run rsync over ssh, with the following syntax:
Paul: rsync [options] srcdir remotehost:destdir (pushing to remote host)
Paul: rsync [options] remotehost:srcdir destdir (pulling from remote host)
Paul: You can also run a daemon on a host, in which case you can let rsync
Paul: talk directly to the remote rsync daemon, without ssh:
Paul: rsync [options] srcdir remotehost::modulename
Paul: rsync [options] remotehost::modulename destdir
Paul: Note the double colon instead of a single colon; alternatively:
Paul: rsync [options] srcdir rsync://remotehost/modulename
Paul: etc.
Paul: The modulename can have a subdirectory appended, or a file, etc.

Ah, much better!

Paul: > One less protocol would be good. How will that affect authentication?
Paul: Read the manpage for rsyncd.conf and search for "secrets file".

Will do.

Not forced. Just kept forgetting to remove it.

Thanks for everything.
