How to setup RSYNC as a daemon on NetWare

Hi,

Can anyone tell me what the procedure is to get RSYNC running in daemon
mode. I've tried the following start script:

rsync -v --progress --auth --address=10.1.10.242 --port=873 --daemon

And there is an rsyncd.conf in sys:/etc. However, I don't get anything
in the log, no errors on the logger or console screens, but rsync does
not stay loaded.

I'm trying to setup a central OES/Linux server to rsync from several
remote NetWare servers. If I can run rsync in daemon mode on the
NetWare servers, I could just have one cron job run from the central
Linux server and back them up. Since the NetWare volumes are not
mounted or NFS shared on the Linux server, I don't see any other way to
run rsync in "pull" mode from the Linux server.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Greg

Re: How to setup RSYNC as a daemon on NetWare

Answered my own question. Sharing for the benefit of others:

Followed this AppNote:

http://www.novell.com/coolsolutions/appnote/654.html#4

In case it gets moved (isn't that inevitable?), the AppNote title is:

AppNote: Using RSync to synchronize data to and from NetWare servers
Novell Cool Solutions: AppNote
By Thomas Erickson

Basically I had a few items wrong in the startup script, most notably
the address (I had copied this originally from another server, and
didn't realize it immediately). --address:0.0.0.0 seems to work fine.

Using the proc. in the AppNote gives the added benefit that now RSYNC is
configurable via NRM.

Thanks,
Greg

Can you tell me where I can download the lastest port of RSYNC.NLM for
netware ?? I currently have 2.6.0 installed as a daemon on a netware 6.5
server that accepts sync requests from Multiple linux boxes no problem..
now we want to sync a windows server directory to it (backup assist) was
recommended on the windows side, and their support people tell me I need
version 2.6.4 or 3.0.5 if possible.. Thanks

As far as I know yes. Maybe someone else knows more...
