pkg -i http://freesco.no-ip.org/rsync/03x/rsync-2.6_nadegda
Package requires opensshd isntalled (latest Dingetje package of 3.7p1 is highly recommended if you don't want to be own3d by some pimpled script kiddie), which will provide libc.5.so as well (this is why I don't include ;ibc in my package). 027 version is coming. I will submit for mirroring as soon as someone tells me that package installs OK. It's a simple binary, Read <a href='http://samba.anu.edu.au/rsync/' target='_blank'>rsync website</a>for more information. I just will note that this binary is compilled with only ssh support, no rsh (which FREESCO doesn't have anyway). It doesn't have anonymous rsync server installed, but could be added if so desired (read website docs for instarcutions). The most resonable use I see is for remote backup (or mirroring). If, for example, you want to have a backup (or mirror) of your FREESCO (original.host) www directory on another FREESCO, *nix, or other machine (mirror.host) , that have rsync installed, you would issue something like this on mirror.host

rsync -e ssh root --archive --delete -p firstname.lastname@example.org:/www/ www
1. Hope I didn't confuse anyone
2. Hope it works (since package is not rested)
3. Hope everyone here can read documentation.
PS: you could use rsync on windoZe. Just remember that windoze port is just a temporary workaround untill you completely switch to GNU/Linux Check <a href='http://www.itefix.no/cwrsync/' target='_blank'>cwRsync website</a> for the win installer. You will also need ssh installed. There are many openssh packages for windoZe using sygwin. There it could get a bit tricky, to combine two packages together. Just copy binaries from openssh bin directory to Windows/system32 (or nt/system32) to make it easier.
PPS: there are many howtos on making passwordless key authentication. Once you have it working, you could run back up from cron job or similar.
