I've been trying to get rsync to work for the past 2 days. I originally had an external drive connected to my linux computer. I used rsync to copy my personal drive to the external. No problems there.
I have since made a windows server 2003 computer. I connected the external backup drive to that. I now want to use rsync to copy all my personal files to that.
My personal files are on a second hard drive. For now, i'm just trying to get a test file or two to transfer over to a test folder on a second drive on the windows 2003 computer.
This is what I type in the terminal:I've tried without userpassword, and still no go.rsync -vprtWO --ignore-errors --delete --force --delete-excluded --stats --log-file=testlog /media/Personal/ username:firstname.lastname@example.org:share
I know I could just mount the share folder and then use rsync that way (I tested it, and it works great) but I rather not mount it if I don't have to.
I also tried to install cwRsyncServer on server 2003, but had no effect. I'm probably not configuring it right.
Feel like I'm in over my head.
Any help or hints as to what I'm doing wrong would be greatly appreciated.
