Yes i did
If I remember well I followed it to the letter.
The only thing I did have a problem with is that it would not work in the beginning.
I read the forums,and found out that somebody solved it (also on debian sarge 3.1) by installing both the server and the client software on both the machines.
I did the same and it solved the problem.
The preparation of the client seemed to go fluenlty, allthough i think rsync did give a problem on some files.
I am sorry I dont know it accurately because all is about one month ago
Is there a certain logfile you know off I could still check in ?
