Additional info:
Overview of steps to integrate rsyncd into current Fedora distribution.

Create configuration for rsyncd server.
- mkdir /etc/rsyncd
- touch /etc/rsyncd.motd
- touch /etc/rsyncd.secrets
- edit /etc/rsyncd.conf

In the directory /lib/systemd/system create two files.
- rsyncd@.service
- rsyncd.socket

Reload systemd daemon, enable and start the service.
- systemctl --system daemon-reload
- systemctl enable rsyncd.socket
- systemctl start rsyncd.socket

Create cron tasks
- backups; script
- crontab

Create a logrotate.d file to rotate and clean up log files.

Attached are all the files currently being used on a Fedora 17 system.

Comment 1 Michal Luscon 2013-01-31 13:54:32 UTC
Fedora rawhide already contains rsyncd service and also rsyncd.conf. Any ideas for improvement are highly welcomed.

Provided logrotate, backup and crontab files fit more into documentation examples than real configurations. I will consider their inclusion into next rsync update.

Thank you for your report.
