I need to use rsync for backup to another machine using a nonstandard port for ssh. 722.


For example, when I test using my translation of the man pages:

rsync [OPTION...] SRC... rsync://[EMAIL PROTECTED]:PORT]/DEST

I use:

rsync -avz /almacen/testDir rsync://backkup.net:722/backup/

the error generated is:

rsync: server sent "SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.1p1 FreeBSD-20080901" rather than greeting rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1504) [sender=3.0.4]


I believe you want the -e option. Example from the man page:

-e 'ssh -p 2234'

In your case, rsync -e 'ssh -p 722' -avz ........

The [:PORT] you tried appears to be for connecting to an rsync daemon listening on a non-standard port.
