Non-secure Rsync

With "non-secure Rsync," you develop a unique password and associate it with an upload account you use to access a specific storage group.

When you issue commands via your Rsync client to this storage group, you include this password value for use in authentication.

In difference to FTP, the password is protected by a challenge-response mechanism. However, content is still sent “in the clear” via the public Internet (It is not encrypted, as is the case with Secure Rsync via SSH.)
