Q: How do I setup the RSA-key for passwordless rsync for BackupPC (BPC) clients?
 

A: On the BPC-server:

bash-3.2$ su -s /bin/bash - backuppc
bash-3.2$ cd /bak
bash-3.2$ ssh-copy-id -i .ssh/id_dsa.pub This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.92.168.0.9
