I have two machines, one WD My Cloud 4TB and one Windows WHS 2011 Server, where I have a few shares that I want to keep synchronized. The WD My Cloud is located at my brother’s house and I have a VPN connection between both locations. I have Cygwin rsync on the Windows WHS 2011 Server.
I configured the WD MyCloud using ssh as described here:
So I’m running the rsync daemon on the WD My Cloud and initiate die transfer from the WHS Server.
I run this with options –rtcv as the owner and group are different on the WHS Server and I just don’t want to copy the original ownership.
Basically the transfer works, except for:
I don’t get the file permissions set as I want it. It is always ‘drwx------ 25 root root’. I want to have it the same as the shares folder where I write in which is ‘drwxrwxrwx 25 root root’.
How do I do that?
Is there a way of not needing to prompt for a password without using ssh? I have a VPN in place and don’t need a ssh connection.
