I've been trying to use rsync on OSX to Linux or Unix box over which I don't have much control. I've been doing something like this
rsync -avz -e ssh remoteuser@remotehost:/remote/dir /this/dir/
Error returned is:
bash: rsync: command not found rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [receiver] rsync error: remote command not found (code 127) at /SourceCache/rsync/rsync-37.3/rsync/io.c(452) [receiver=2.6.9]
However, after reading the docs I'm beginning to think that I would actually need to install an rsync daemon on the remote host.
- Must I install an rsync server on the remote host?
- Free alternatives -- GUI or non-GUI -- which do not require installing anything on the remote host?
