comment Escaping spaces in a remote path when using rsync over a remote SSH connection
+1. Javier's description of how rsync works is good, and the advice to use double quotes with single quotes inside is very helpful in general. But it is not the solution to this problem.

@Javier "I have no idea why is that done". Presumably so that tilde expansion works.

You are leaving out some vital detail. Please post the actual command you are running, in full.

comment Escaping spaces in a remote path when using rsync over a remote SSH connection
You are not using single plus double quotes. You are using single quotes plus double quotes plus backslash escapes. THREE levels of quoting. This should be unnecessary. I ask again: How are you running it?

That shouldn't be necessary. How are you running it? Are you running it using eval or via a call to a function perhaps?

So how did you quote it to make it work?

comment Unable to remove file using 'rm'
Your output says "S1208001.002" but you are asking about "A120001.002"?

Can you please provide full output, and fix the line breaks so that each line of ls -l appears on a separate line in your question?

Note that default ACLs do not enforce a maximum set of permissions, they just make those permissions the default. cp -p, scp -p, and copying via Nautilus will still try to make the copy's permissions the same as the file being copied.

What behavior do you want? You can set default permissions for new files by using default ACLs. Nautilus will honor the default ACL. See vanemery.com/Linux/ACL/linux-acl.html for an overview and suse.de/~agruen/acl/linux-acls/online for all the details.

comment Why can't I bind to 127.0.0.1 on Mac OS X?
Is there something already listening on port 8080? What does netstat say? e.g. netstat -a -n -f inet | grep '127.0.0.1:8080' or similar.

Sounds like copying with Nautilus is preserving permissions like cp -p or scp -p would.
