so, Ok. But could you add some tips with this? I understand that:

ris --> install rsync daemon
ulises -> dirvish and modify the master.conf (or the defaukt.conf) how?

the problem is that by now I cannot execute dirvish in ulises. Ulises is the 
icy box. But, there are people working in a new distro based in gentoo ... 
yes, we are talking in have a gentoo in a little box with two hds. They have 
ported a new kernel with a better performance in the network, perl and rsync 
incorporated and .... simply doing a emeger dirvish all is done.
