Possible Duplicate:
rsync with script supplied password

I have a process that makes several rsync calls to the same server because I have to copy several files locally into different directories remotely. The remote server does not accept ssh keyfiles for authentication.

Is it possible to:

  • automate the password phrase for rsync,
  • or allow multiple source/destinations pairs for one rsync invocation?
