However, the -z option is specified by the *client*, but here we're talking about the server's administrator being concerned by the load generated by compression. If you have clients who don't read instructions (as if that would ever happen :-) and specify -z when asked not to, then you should put dont compress = * in the server configuration. (Strictly, this does -z0 compression, so the client thinks it's getting compressed data but the server doesn't try very hard.) -- Martin Pool, Linuxcare, Inc. +61 2 6262 8990 firstname.lastname@example.org, http://www.linuxcare.com/ Linuxcare.
