Thanks Eric,

after the Paul's mail I thought: ummm, rsync modules .... I have no idea. So, 
with your mail I began to understand the Paul's answer.

Now, I have to see if I could follow the advice of a new box executing dirvish 
or wait to be able to execute dirvish in ulises.

Thanks for all,

best regards,

Leo
