    Question rsync and comcast on-line storage

    How to rsync from my box to comcast on-line storage?

    ftp to comcast goes like this: ftp://upload.comcast.net (enter user and then password)

    When I attempt this to my local box, it works fine:

    rsync -arvqsPF --exclude='/.gvfs' --exclude=/home/dave/FrostWire/* /home/dave/* /media/Backup/Daily

    When I attempt this from my local box to comcast:

    rsync -arvqsPF ~ftp/upload.comcast.net: "/Backup/Daily" --exclude='/.gvfs' --exclude=/home/dave/FrostWire/* /home/dave/* /media/Backup/Daily

    I run into a permission problem in that I can't figure out how to input my id and pass automatically. I've already used other ftp to set up directories on the comcast server.

    advice please Thank you in advance.

    My guess is that their server is not set up as an rsync server, it's ftp only.

    couldn't you mount the ftp share using curlftpfs and then rsync to it?

    ie
    Code:
    curlftpfs ftp.site.com /media/backup
    rsync -options /source/files /media/backup

    I have been trying this to no avail. Curl (and curl is what translates your local commands to ftp commands here) does NOT support rsync.
