I am trying to use rsync
1/ Are both machine to have rsync installed?
2/ machine A#rsync -essh machineB:/ .
I try this command but what wrong I am
rsync -essh root at machineB:/ .
skipping directory /.
client: nothing to do: perhaps you need to specify
some filenames or the --recursive option?
Thank you for your help
