Testing the rsync

With the rsync target now set, you need to either kill and restart the inetd process to start rsync as a daemon, or just reboot the MBWE.

I used the Synology DS109+ to run the test, creating a job as shown in Figure 6. Note that instead on the MBWE's IP address, I used its host name. This is because of its nasty habit of grabbing a new IP address on each reboot when it is set as a DHCP client. If I were going to have the MBWEII on my LAN permanently, I would have assigned it a static IP or reserved an IP in my DHCP server.

Note that the backup module name is set to test, meaning this job is using the access-controlled test folder. If I wanted to use the Public folder, I just would set the Backup module to Public.

Once I had everything set up, a click on the Synology's Back up Now button on its Backup page, ran the rsync successfully.

One thing I did note was a succession of these messages in the MBWE's log:

07/13 16:52:03 MyBookWorld daemon.info rsyncd[9955]: connect from UNKNOWN (10.168.3.245)
07/13 16:52:03 MyBookWorld daemon.info rsyncd[9955]: name lookup failed for 10.168.3.245: Name or service not known

07/13 16:51:53 MyBookWorld daemon.info rsyncd[9954]: name lookup failed for 10.168.3.245: Name or service not known
07/13 16:51:47 MyBookWorld daemon.info rsyncd[9953]: connect from UNKNOWN (10.168.3.245)
07/13 16:51:47 MyBookWorld daemon.info rsyncd[9953]: name lookup failed for 10.168.3.245: Name or service not known
07/13 16:51:37 MyBookWorld daemon.info rsyncd[9932]: connect from UNKNOWN (10.168.3.245)
07/13 16:51:37 MyBookWorld daemon.info rsyncd[9932]: name lookup failed for 10.168.3.245: Name or service not known

I'm not sure what the problem is or why the rsync daemon is trying to do a reverse name lookup. But these messages don't seem to affect the rsync process.

Next time, I'll show you how to use Buffalo NASes as rsync targets.
