rsync command problems


Hi using rsync within our bluetooth software to control and update a network. We have 14 client servers all building data and sending bluetooth messages and all connected to an enterprise master server on an internal network.
The client servers each have there own IP and need to send obex data reports to the enterprise which also has its own IP. The enterprise then sends data back to the clients like content updates and configuration settings.
Our software currently has the following configuration:

OBEX UPDATE (page)
Data Source rsync://192.168.1.60/ccobex-data/
Sync Options -f :_.rsync-filter --delete-after

RSYNC- FILTER
- /download/**/.lock*
- /download/**/.log*
+ /download
+ /download/**
+ /selfile
+ /selfile/**
+ .rsync-filter
: .rsync-filter
- *

RSYNC CONFIG
uid =nobody
gid =nobody
use chroot =yes
read only =yes
max verbosity =1
timeout =600
transfer logging =yes

[ccobex-data]
path = /var/opt/ccobex
comment = ccobex data files
filter = . /var/opt/ccobex/ .rsync-filter

The data in the ccobex folder contains
selfile,download,obexfilel.log,obexscan.log
At present only the download and selfile is changed but the obexfile.log and obexscan.log does not change.
We really need the file and scan logs to come over also
Can anyone offer any advice as we have been on this an eternity trying to solve

Is this the config file for a wrapper you wrote to rsync? Is there any way you can post the actual rsync command that is run?

is there possibly a filter excluding the logs in ccobex folder in .rsync-filter?

Code:
+ /download
+ /selfile
Seems like this is matching the download file and the selfile. But this part:
Code:
- *
Doesn't this match everything else. Excluding the logs you want.

What I mean is that it looks like what you posted is just a configuration file. So my guess is that you have some program that parses the configuration file and turns it into a single rsync command. I was hoping you could post that command.

He posted the source and the options and the filter stated in the options. The exact command can be built from that something like:

rsync -f .rsync-filter --delete-after rsync://192.168.1.60/ccobex-data/ destination/

Woops' you were right meson he is on a different page.

krisrae675:
I was guessing above at what command you were trying I was not suggesting you use the above command I should have explained myself better. Please post the command you where trying.
If you have ssh I would suggest you setup keys for logins and use the command:
Code:
rsync -ave ssh --delete user@192.168.1.60:/path/to/ccobex-data/ /path/to/destination/
(maybe skip to --delete flag until you know it's working. delete flag will remove files on the destination side that are missing from the src) This is done from the destination computer. If you are on the 192.168.1.60 machine you would use:
Code:
rsync -ave ssh --delete /path/to/ccobex-data/ user@192.168.1.xx:/path/to/destination/
Where xx is your IP or destination IP.

And of course add your filter with the -f flag.

Hi Thanks for your reply again !
I did try the command you originally posted i did change the paths to the correct ones
Regarding the command I was using to run rsync it was
rsync://192.168.1.60/ccobex-data/
