[Backup & Restore - Remote Sync] - extend rsync

Postby soundy » Sun Sep 16, 2018 3:15 pm

Hello Developers

Currently, one cannot sync via rsync over ssh to another computer unless we are user root. This is not only limiting, but possibly insecure practice to be throwing root logins around. Please extend and develop rsync capability further, so that we may use it over ssh to different servers with user of our choice. rsync is a great fast efficient protocol - it would be swell to use it with flexibility and best practice :D
Thanks for a great product!

Hello

I'm really surprised that some years later, there has been no change in this dept. Ability to use rsync w/ SSH for offsite backup and not require root seems like such a basic thing to me. Some of us like to use smaller cleaner greener cloud providers like rsync.net (it's a company not the protocol), and steer clear of the amazon's etc.

Thanks,
S.

I second that. I've been a rsync.net customer for quite a long time (over 10 years) and their service is immaculate.
However, I just bought an Asustor AS5304T (and loving it), but I cannot use the remote sync feature with rsync.net!!!

Why are we REQUIRED to use "root" for an rsync over SSH backup???

Yes Please! This issue requirement for using root really needs to be rectified.
