I really tried but I'm unable to get it working…
1 WDMBWE 192.168.1.20 MyBookWorldT2x The file server (RAID 1) running rsync
1 WDMBWE 192.168.1.15 MyBookWorld The backup box running rsync
On 192.168.1.20 the rsyncd.conf:
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log [gaston_src] comment = "source to be copied" path = /shares/internal/GASTON/test/ hosts allow = 192.168.0.15 list = true uid = nobody gid = nobody auth users = Gaston use chroot = yes read only = no
From 192.168.1.15 I do:
[root@MyBookWorld etc]# rsync -av Gaston@192.168.1.20::gaston_src/ /tmp/ @ERROR: access denied to gaston_src from mybookworld (192.168.1.15) rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1296) [rec eiver=2.6.8]
It should be easy, but not for me.
What should I do ?
