Question user permissions

i want a normal user to be able to only exec the rsync command without giving him root privileges. The normal standart user rights should be equal. ssh connect is np my prob is i want to "rsync -e ssh" a special file and i want to cron this job but the job has to run with a non root user.
Please help me;-)

You should be able to use:
rsync -e ssh -arz user@host:/source/path /dest/path

rsync -e ssh -arz /dest/path user@host:/source/path
