Re: rsync fails to copy (both 2.4.6-1 and 2.5.5-0.1) maybe other ways to copy?

You don't need a server for the incremental updates to happen. rsync
on the client side invokes rsync on the remote side and does an
incremental backup anyway. That is why you need rsh/ssh or something
before you can rsync without the server. At least on a *nix
box. Perhaps wintel changes that.......
