i want rsync between windows and linux. For that i installed cygwin and cygwin's packages on windows,which is necessary for rsync. i dont know how to do?, where i have to write commands, in cygwin or in putty? please help me... i am new in cygwin, dont know anything about it
Yes, in general you need to decide, and it depends on what do you want to achieve. Network connection required, and also you need to know if you want to use rsync directly or over ssh (that means you want to use rsync or ssh server).
i want to copy my data ( C or D drive) from windows client to linux server, nd run rsync from windows only.
Currently am using cygwin software which is installed on windows.
Actually want to run rsync silently or quietly.. is this possible??
yes, rsync should not use root account, but a regular user.
For the job you want to run: you need to construct a cmd file (or bash script) to do the task and you need to run it from cron (or by the command at on windows)
Actually have a condition..
every 15 minutes rsync should be run.
what to u mean by cron? i mean what is cron?
how to create cmd or bash file?? so sorry i dont know .. i am new in this
please help me..
thnks for rply..
yeah its good... but cron is for linux/unix. not for windows.
what should i do for windows? i mean rsync from windows command prompt
thats y i installed cygwin.. but get solution yet.. tried many times.
Is there any way rsync or copy data from windows to linux through cygwin??
