I have a server configured to run rsync as demon /etc/rsyncd.conf file:
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid lock file = /var/run/rsync.lock [documents] path = /home/user/work comment = User's Documents folder uid = user gid = user read only = no auth users = user secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.secrets
on the client side I run:
rsync my_file user@ip_address::documents
and I receive the following error:
@ERROR: auth failed on module documents rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1524) [sender=3.0.7]
On the server I have a root user named user with different password. On the client side I tried both passwords with the same results.
What I'm doing wrong?
