Hi Peeps, Does anyone know if it is possible to use rsync to back up an ftp site that uses a password. I am aware of rsync://[[email protected]]HOST[:PORT]/SRC [DEST] but how do I handle the password? If this is not possible does it mean I have to use sftp?
Rsync (usually) runs over ssh, so set up keys for passwordless ssh login and rsync won't need a password either.
