We use rsync modules, hostname::modulename, extensively for
things like this as they can restrict the remote host to specific
directories, and IP address/CIDR block ranges without using ssh.
For things like rsync dns updates of djbdns/tinydns data files,
this can be done without encryption. Where the data is
sensitive, doing the update over OpenVPN tunnels works nicely.
