    TO ensure that rsync works correctly over ssh
    spaghetti% rsync -avz -e ssh --delete Documents prodigy:/tmp
    Password:
    building file list ... done
    Documents/
    Documents/Letters/
    Documents/Letters/Santa.odt
    [...]
    spaghetti%
    to create the key pair

    spaghetti% ssh-keygen -t rsa
    Generating public/private rsa key pair.
    Enter file in which to save the key (/home/kattoo/.ssh/id_rsa): testRsync
    Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
    Enter same passphrase again:
    Your identification has been saved in testRsync.
    Your public key has been saved in testRsync.pub.
    The key fingerprint is:

    Re: Secure Network Transfers using rsync

    Modern versions of rsync use ssh by default. While ssh is slower than rsh, the data being transfered will be encrypted, randomly corrupted in transit.

    $ rsync -e 'ssh -ax' -avz example.org:/tmp .
    If speed is a concern, use a weaker encryption option to ssh.

    $ rsync -e 'ssh -ax -c blowfish' -avz example.org:/tmp .
    The -ax options to ssh disable Secure Shell (SSH) agent and X11 forwarding, which are not needed by rsync. Also consider setting -o ClearAllForwardings to ssh, to prevent possible automatic port forwards. For more information on options to OpenSSH, peruse ssh(1) and ssh_config(5).

    Re: Secure Network Transfers using rsync

    you need to configuration the rsync binary in daemon mode. Even your rsync client machines can run rsync in daemon mode for two-way transfers. You can do this automatically for each connection via the inet daemon or at the commandline in standalone mode. try here http://everythinglinux.org/rsync/
