How can I pull files from windows to linux/unix within a secure network ?
Assuming that you want to pull directory c:\backup on Windows machine to /var/backup on Linux machine:
On Windows machine :
- Install Cwrsync Server
- Start RsyncServer service
- Add a new module to the configuration file rsyncd.conf :
path = /cygdrive/c/backup
read only = true
transfer logging = yes
On Linux machine :
- Use the command below to initiate rsync:
rsync -vrt windows_machine::backup /var/backup
NB! Keep in mind that the recipe above is suitable for operations within a secure network.
