Hello BLUG,

I am trying to issue the following rsync command with no success:
rsync –arR –files-from=my_files.tmp user@$ /what/ever/

and I get this error:
Unexpected remote arg: user@$ /what/ever/
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at main.c(1348) [sender=3.1.1]

I've been trying to find the correct syntax to make this work, with no
All I need is to run rsync (from my local machine) and grab the files
specified in my_files.tmp (saved on my local machine) from the remote
machine to my local machine.
All the examples I found are with my_files.tmp on the source machine, but I
cannot do this in my specific case.

What am I doing wrong? Any help or hint is appreciated :-)

Thank you,
