nner. If the "charset" parameter is not set, the --iconv option is refused, just as if "iconv" had been specified via "refuse options".

If you wish to force users to always use --iconv for a particular module, add "no-iconv" to the "refuse options" parameter. Keep in mind that this will restrict access to your module to very new rsync clients.

max connections
The "max connections" option allows you to specify the maximum number of simultaneous connections you will allow. Any clients connecting when the maximum has been reached will receive a message telling them to try later. The default is 0, which means no limit. A negative value disables the module. See also the "lock file" option.

log file
When the "log file" option is set to a non-empty string, the rsync daemon will log messages to the indicated file rather than using syslog. This is particularly useful on systems (such as AIX) where syslog() doesn't work for chrooted programs. The file is opened before chroot() is called, allowing it to be placed outside the transfer. If this value is set on a per-module basis instead of globally, the global log will still contain any authorization failures or config-file error messages.

If the daemon fails to open to specified file, it will fall back to using syslog and output an error about the failure. (Note that the failure to open the specified log file used to be a fatal error.)

syslog facility
The "syslog facility" option allows you to specify the syslog facility name to use when logging messages from the rsync daemon. You may use any standard syslog facility name which is defined on your system. Common names are auth, authpriv, cron, daemon, ftp, kern, lpr, mail, news, security, syslog, user, uucp, local0, local1, local2, local3, local4, local5, local6 and local7. The default is daemon. This setting has no effect if the "log file" setting is a non-empty string (either set in the per-modules settings, or inherited from the global settings).

max verbosity
The "max verbosity" option allows you to control the maximum amount of verbose information that you'll allow the daemon to generate (since the information goes into the log file). The default is 1, which allows the client to request one level of verbosity.

lock file
The "lock file" option specifies the file to use to support the "max connections" option. The rsync daemon uses record locking on this file to ensure that the max connections limit is not exceeded for the modules sharing the lock file. The default is /var/run/rsyncd.lock.

read only
The "read only" option determines whether clients will be able to upload files or not. If "read only" is true then any attempted uploads will fail. If "read only" is false then uploads will be possible if file permissions on the daemon side allow them. The default is for all modules to be read only.

write only
The "write only" option determines whether clients will be able to download files or not. If "write only" is true then any attempted downloads will fail. If "write only" is false then downloads will be possible if file permissions on the daemon side allow them. The default is for this option to be disabled.

list
The "list" option determines if this module should be listed when the client asks for a listing of available modules. By setting this to false you can create hidden modules. The default is for modules to be listable.

uid
The "uid" option specifies the user name or user ID that file transfers to and from that module should take place as when the daemon was run as root. In combination with the "gid" option this determines what file permissions are available. The default is uid -2, which is normally the user "nobody".

gid
The "gid" option specifies the group name or group ID that file transfers to and from that module should take place as when the daemon was run as root. This complements the "uid" option. The default is gid -2, which is normally the group "nobody".

fake super
Setting "fake super = yes" for a module causes the daemon side to behave as if the --fake-user command-line option had been specified. This allows the full attribu
