Trying to get backuppc working for a friend, over an OpenVPN net, backing up his desktop machine. Currently, having a lot of trouble getting rsync working.
Trying on the command line, with the backuppc user & pass, gives this:
rsync --port 873 roger-desk@roger-desk::kDrive
@ERROR: chdir failed
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1383) [receiver=2.6.9]
On the server, it logs this:
2009/08/14 14:37:59  name lookup failed for 10.12.0.1: Unknown server error
2009/08/14 14:37:59  connect from UNKNOWN (10.12.0.1)
2009/08/14 14:38:03  rsync: chdir /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/system32/k: failed
I used this how-to to setup the client on my windows machine:
Relevant bit of that is, I did this to create a rsyncd service on the machine:
cygrunsrv.exe -I rsyncd -e CYGWIN=nontsec -p c:/cygwin/bin/rsync.exe -a "--config=c:/cygwin/rsyncd.conf --daemon --no-detach"
Can anyone help?
