First time install - server on Win2003, client on Linux

Most of my servers are running Linux. I use rsync to back up my live servers to my backup drives, and it works quite nicely. Now I have to start backing up two Windows servers (Windows 2003 Server).
I installed rsycn from this site (itefix.no), version 2.6.5. I editted my rsyncd.conf to look like:
use chroot = false
strict mode = false
hosts allow = *

<br />path = /cygdrive/c<br />read only = true<br />transfer logging = yes<br /><br />I then started the openssh and rsync services manually.  Now from the Linux box I am attempting to:<br /><br />rsync -vru --rsh="/usr/bin/ssh" SvcwRsync@www3:/c /media/ieee1394disk1/www3/c<br /><br />I get prompted for a password, and enter the pw for that user. I get "Permission denied, please try again.". I try again, using a user name defined in the Windows user base, with a known good password. Same error.<br /><br />I assume I'm either formatting my request to the Windows server incorrectly or have messed up the config file on the Windows box. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I should be looking at first?<br /><br />

Can you try

rsync -vru www3::c /media/ieee1394disk1/www3/c

instead ?

The command above allows you to get contact with the rsync daemon directly (port 873). Consider to establish an ssh-based external secure channel if you want to run all this stuff securely.

Yep, that does it - thanks! Now I can figure out the ssh part myself.
