    rsync, what ports does it use

    hmmmm searched the rsync doc for this but cant find it

    what ports do the client use to connect to the server???

    i need to run this to mirror a server, but both have firewalls

    i need to setup the firewalls to allow the connections

    any idea?

    Hi Matt,

    All port designations can be found in the /etc/services file. This will extract the ports for you.

    cat /etc/services | grep rsync

    Hope it helps,

    Kai

    you can also pipe it over ssh so you only need to leave port 22 open.
    this is the basic command from the man page:

    rsync -av --rsh="ssh -l ssh-user" rsync-user@host::module[/path] local-path

    Why us "cat?" This is easier: grep rsync /etc/services

    I need to be more date conscious. ha ha. However, those commands haven't changed in that time. :-) Thanks for pointing out what I should have seen. OK, more coffee.
