- Subject: Linux -> Win2K sync
I've read the documentation, but I'm still a little unclear on this
I have a RedHat 8 server, a Win2K server, connected via VPN on seperate
LANs. Network connectivity isn't an issue; both servers can communicate.
I have installed Cygwin on the Win2K box, and the version of rsync is
2.5.6. The RedHat box has v 2.5.5-1. The following files exist in this
path = /home/user/sounds/
comment = Sound files
auth users = scribe
secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.scrt
On the Linux box, I've execute rsync in daemon mode:
root@server etc]# rsync --daemon --config=/etc/rsyncd.conf
On the Win2K machine, I open the Cygwin bash window and execute"
$ rsync -azv scribe@server::core c:\backup
The system responds with:
Password: (which I supply)
@ERROR: auth failed on module core
rsync: connection unexpected closed (88 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at
Obviously I'm doing something wrong with the user configuration here, or
perhaps the permission set. Suggestions?
