run profile via ssh

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

run profile via ssh

Post by nikc »


I am trying to run a SyncbackFree profile on Windows 10 via ssh from a machine running Linux.

The ssh command I am using on the Linux machine is this -

Code: Select all

ssh [email protected] "D:\Users\john\sync.bat"
The contents of 'sync.bat' on the Windows machine is this -

Code: Select all

@echo off
"D:\Program Files (x86)\2BrightSparks\SyncBackFree\SyncBackFree.exe" sync
ssh [email protected] /home/nick/
The profile does appear to run however the 'Results' column in Syncback then displays 'Network Failure' on completion. The batch does complete as the last line executes successfully.

Is there a way I can get this to work as intended or is it the case that what I am tying to do is not possible?

Many thanks
