I have trouble using rsync to backup my local home folder to a remote server (chh2). When I type the following command:
rsync -v -e ssh /home/* email@example.com:~/Documents/chh1_backup
I get the following error:
Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding. skipping directory chh1 sent 16 bytes received 12 bytes 18.67 bytes/sec total size is 0 speedup is 0.00
I have no trouble establishing a connection with ssh -X firstname.lastname@example.org nor do I have any trouble with scp.
I have tried all combinations of the following lines in /etc/ssh/config:
# ForwardAgent no ForwardX11 yes # ForwardX11Trusted yes
and none of them made any difference. Does anyone know how to put me on the right path with this? Much appreciated!
