Yes ... I saw that ... is there anyway to "chroot" rsync over ssh, so I
can use public keys and not run the actual rsync server ?
I'd like to do the same thing with rdist as well, and am not sure ... how
that would even work. I do rdist now over ssh, and it works fine, but
... not sure how to get rdist users to only see their own directory.
Is it possible taht what I really want to do is chroot ssh, if I am doing
all of my rsync/rdist over ssh ?
