RsyncX has problems
Authored by: gctwnl on May 12, '03 12:15:56PM

The HFS+ implementation on maxosclabs (RsyncX) is broken in that it only works if it is installed on all systems communicating with each other. In other words, you gain HFS+ rsyncing between all the Macs you have installed this on, but it willnot work between the this rsync and the real rsync or between rsyncx serving UFS to HFS+. The code that macosxlabs has generated could be improved (goto statements in C, come on...)

So I would hope that a compatible rsyncx would be developed with support for HFS+ and ordinary UFS.
