rsync windows linux

I have used deltacopy on my windows machine to serve as my client. Now i want to use rsync in my linux machine as a server, to trasnfer files from windows to linux. But how do i do this in linux, i have already installed rsync by downloading a rsync.rpm and build it, so in commandline i can use rsync. But now im lost any help?

Could you start at the beginning and tell us what you want to do, exactly (minus what programs you want to use for that).

Also - what distribution do you use?
If you just want to share files between windows and linux, all you need is Samba.

Read what the guy above wrote about Samba. It permits your Linux server to mount an NTFS share that resides on your Windows box.

You can read a lot more here:

Hope this helps,

On linux server, you may need to edit /etc/rsyncd.conf according to your need.
