That sounds like a local keychain problem. If you don't use it
at all or don't use ssh keys, it should just prompt you for the
Test with somethng like 'ssh remote_server id'. Once that works
you should be able to use 'rsync -e ssh ...'.
I can do 'ssh anne@borg' and connect to the remote box - no problem, and
key is passed. What I'm trying to do is find the commands I will need so
that I can put together a script to do regular copies across the lan.
I'll struggle on with the docs - it's no worse than the first time I got
gpg-agent going ;-)
