Yeah ... I know how to do that ... I wasn't asking how to rsync it, I was
asking how I could:
a) keep remote root logins _disabled_
b) keep default freebsd permissions on the /usr/home directory
and still do the rsync ... in your example, you are remotely logging in as
root, which I want to avoid.
Any suggestions ?
