    When I rsync on my own machine I have no problems with how long directories and file names are. But when I use it for backup with ssh - it seems to bomb out with long names. Is this a limitation of Rsync, ssh or a combo - or a different version of rsync on the remote server?

    Both linux.

    Go on, have a guess
    Not something that I've come across. That said, are you using compression with rsync (-z), I've seen many a problem caused by using it and if you are, you could try taking out that switch and seeing if it then works.

    No. no "z". It works fine when i do it from directory to directory on my own server - but when I do it accross to another it errors and says permission denied to create the directory several levels down -all when it has created all the ones leading to that directory.

    Weird - that is why I rhought I would ask.

    Maybe ssh - problem as I use rsync in ssh with the "-e ssh" options.
