I’m new rclone user, excuse me for silly questions.
I tried rclone locally only, so:
- I want to replace rsync(for begining), use rclone to sync data from local(ubuntu) to remote backup(ubuntu) server. The question is - should I install rclone on remote server too? what about authorization in this case?
- What protocol rclone use for (1) in my case? what ports I should open in iptables?
- Does rclone use compression? if yes, does rclone try to set compression level automatically or it needs manual intervention?
I tried to find this in docs and google, but failed.
btw, I think it would be good to add brief protocol description at the top of manual, sysadmins with some experience want to know about rclone background firstly, to understand what rclone really is.
