The situation is our client wants to download the most recent backup from our server (and they don't want us setting it up for them via rdesktop etc.. (sigh)). The client is running windows, server is linux.
I don't want to have to write a lengthy and complicated guide for them to set up pub/pri key auth as they'll no doubt waste all their time and ours. I'm going to get them to install cwRsync which is just rsync for windows pretty much.
Normally I'd use a public/private key setup to do this and set it up securely, however that's not really too much of a concern.
How do I specify a password for ssh on the command line for rsync? I'm used to: rsync -avz someone@somehost:/blah .
