For a push (remote) style sync:
- Initiated on source using Rsync -> Jobs
- Syncing to destination's rsyncd server configured in Rsync -> Server -> Modules
1 - Create module on destination in Rsync -> Server -> Modules called "movies"
2 - Create job on source server in Rsync -> Jobs
- type is: remote
- mode is: push
- destination server should be: aaron@serverip::movies
- enter users password
Should work. Obviously, there are many different methods of doing this.
It's a pull for fething files on a remote linux machine, but in the same network. I have not set upp rsync on source machine, but it ssh is installed. The folder is a shared folder via samba. It seems the connection to the source folder is denied. My question is: Do I have to set up the destination machine with ssh keys?
Omv 2.0 doesn't not support rsync in the webui with remote transport shell (ssh). At least not in a very straightforward way.
It can do it, but it has to be with keys and this keys need to be without passphrase and login with password has to be disabled. So yes if the remote server doesn't have a rsync daemon you can use ssh but it has to be configured as I mentioned.
At the bottom of the rsync task where it says extra options you can put
--rsh "ssh -i /path/to/identifyfile"
