[lug] Commercial rsync service?

Could you elaborate a bit on XP? (Or is this the wrong forum?)
Yes XP has DAV built in. But what is the relationship between between DAV
and rsync? I thought rsync used ssh. Can rsync use DAV too? I'm looking at
the rsync man page and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.

I would guess you can buy data space from indra.com, and use "rsync -e
ssh".  You might also consider finding an ISP that has a WebDAV
server.  You can then mount the drive, and do rsync via the network
mount.  On Linux, you use davfs.  On the Mac, it's built in.  On XP,
it is built in, but you probably want Novell's netdrive, because XP's
web folders totally suck.
