10.4: Securely copy resource forked files between Macs
Authored by: ekc on Mar 03, '07 08:33:13AM
Apple's provided rsync does keep the mtime however. And is better suited for what you seem to be doing.

Well, last I checked, rsync -E has the same issues as scp -E, and possibly even some extras according to what I've read here and there.

Did you double-check your syntax ? Doesn't seem to work as stated (verbatim)

Well, you would need to substitute joe_blow@192.168.1.100 and Desktop/foo.textClipping with whatever would be relevant in your case. I just used those in keeping with the original example.

By the way, it shouldn't be necessary to remember IP addresses like 192.168.1.100 if you give every computer a name in System Preferences → Sharing. Then you could write user@computer_name.local instead (making appropriate substitutions for the portions in italics). Bonjour/Rendezvous was supposed to spare us from memorizing IP addresses on the LAN.

Oh, one more thing I noticed in looking over my script is that when copying a folder instead of a file, I seem to be adding a --keepParent after the first ditto. I forget what that's all about…
