I've been struggling for a couple of weeks to get this set up I've asked for help my from server providers and they provided some but ultimately responded with 'Ask QNAP', so alas I'm here.
I'm not the most technically minded when it comes to Rsync to take it easy with me. lol
In the qnap admin I set it like follows:
Server type: Rsync
Network share: /home
When I test it with my credentials I get the following error:
The remote host or the destination directory does not exist, or a port error is encountered.
Well thats a rather vague description, I did search but didn't find anything that helped me much. the destination IP is correct and the directory exists. It's a Centos 5 with cpanel with /home as the main directory for website/cpanel contents. So I thought it would be a port error, I contacted the people who manage my server and they said the port was open, I tested it through http://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/
and it said the port was closed, I then tested it with nmap/zenmap and it still didn't show the port as being open.
I turned the server firewall off and it still said the same, when I run the following command through a terminal it tells me it's open and server techs also tell me it's open.
csf -l | grep :873
143 6 348 ACCEPT tcp -- !lo * 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 state NEW tcp dpt:873
130 0 0 ACCEPT tcp -- * !lo 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 state NEW tcp dpt:873
137 0 0 ACCEPT tcp -- * !lo 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 state NEW tcp dpt:873
143 0 0 ACCEPT udp -- * !lo 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 state NEW udp dpt:873
As you can see it's set to accept and UDP incoming is apparently all set correctly.
I've set up port forwarding on my local network also.
Is there something I'm missing here? Does anyone have any other ideas?
I know that I could also go the snapshot rout, but I'd rather keep it simple at the moment and make sure it can be done this way before I start making modifications to the QNAP box.
(I have dedicated servers and not shared hosting)
Thanks for any help and advice given.
