All topics that I've come across involved
rsync using a user with restricted access.
I'm getting permission denied (13) errors as root. Here are my config files:
auth users = backup, root secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.secrets [backupdir] path = /backupdir
/etc/rsyncd.secrets (file mode 600, owner root, group root):
The bash script that performs the rsync:
export RSYNC_PASSWORD=rootpassword rsync -a --verbose --delete rsync://root@myserver/backupdir mydestination
The bash script above and
mydestination reside on a Win XP machine and
myserver is a Debian server.
