I had to set cygwin=nontsec for my rsync service for the cron jobs to work
correctly between 2 win2k servers (both ntfs, I set it up a while back now
though.) Otherwise the files were owned by SYSTEM if i remember rightly, and
needed to be chowned/chmodded before they were any use.
With nontsec they just inherited the directories permissions.
Havent tried over ssh though. I was using rsync in server mode as a service.
