Talk:Rsyncd setup on a windows computer for use with Affa backup

When I install cygwin, openssh, rsync and vim as described in this article, rsync is installed in /bin, not in /usr/bin.

Thus, the command I needed to run to create the rsync service was:

cygrunsrv --install "rsyncd" --path /bin/rsync --args "--daemon --no-detach" \
--desc "Starts a rsync daemon for accepting incoming rsync connections" \
--disp "Rsync Daemon" --type auto

instead of:

cygrunsrv --install "rsyncd" --path /usr/bin/rsync --args "--daemon --no-detach" \
--desc "Starts a rsync daemon for accepting incoming rsync connections" \
--disp "Rsync Daemon" --type auto

Which screenshot do you refer to? --Mweinber 22:24, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
I think he means the cygwin install screen caps. The Prev/Next buttons. I seem to recall some other german text in another affa related wiki page... but my mind slips. Too much going on at the moment. --Christian 23:40, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
Yes, indeed, all screenshots on this page, which essentially boils down to the CygWIN installation. — Cactus (talk | contribs 08:36, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
Ah ok. The button text is in German as I only have the german localized Windows version. I cannot change this. --Mweinber 11:39, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
