Hi,

I'm trying to configure Hyper Backup to rsync on my Mac. So far I was able to login during the Backup Wizard but I can't go further. When I hit "Next", it pops an error window. I made sure everything was ok from that error message but the message keeps re-appearing. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

Mac's IP
Code:
192.168.68.104

The rsync conf files on my Mac:
Code:
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  408 13 Jul 04:33 rsyncd.conf
-rw-------  1 root  wheel   40 13 Jul 04:31 rsyncd.secrets

rsyncd.conf
Code:
pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid
lock file = /var/run/rsync.lock
motd=/etc/rsync/rsyncd.motd

uid = nobody
gid = nobody
use chroot = yes
max connections = 5
syslog facility = local5

[backup_on_macpro]
path = /Users/bpjobin/test_rsync_backup
comment = bpjobin's Home
uid = bpjobin
gid = admin
list = yes
read only = no
auth users = username
secrets file = /etc/rsync/rsyncd.secrets
hosts allow = 192.168.68.107

rsyncd.secrets
Code:
username:password

You sure that the port communication is working? Any local FW on the mac side? You sure that mac is listening on 873?

Thanks for the quick response!

I found it a few hours later. I was placing the rsync plist config file inside /Users/[username]/Library/LaunchAgents instead of /Library/LaunchDaemons. Therefore, rsync wasn't running properly. Moved it, reloaded it and the backup went through!

Hope this helps someone or even my futur self.
