Sorry I made an err, I hope it doesn't ruin anyones good feelings. What
I found is a working Rsync Server, that allows a Dirvish server to
connect as a client, to the Windows machine, and pull backups from it.
In other words, I have my Debian 3.0 box, that runs dirvish, and is a
nice little happy camper. Then I have a Windows Desktop, and a Windows
Notebook, that run Rsync on them, so that dirvish can back stuff up on
I didn't mean to suggest that I had successfully run dirvish on Windows,
and now had a working rsync client for windows to connect to other
machines. One reason this wouldn't work is because NTFS doesn't support
hardlinking files; well actually it does but next to no one seems to
know this and I doubt dirvish could natively use NTFS hardlinking (and
no I'm not talking about crosslinked files).
