Simple rsync server running in a docker container
This is based off of https://github.com/bfosberry/rsync with a few
modifications, such as starting from an 'alpine' image rather than an 'ubuntu'
This is meant to be a temporary, disposable rsync storage. Do *NOT* use for
backups. Unless you properly mount the '/data' volume, of course.
You can also this container to link against other containers.
Launch the container via docker:
docker run -d -p 873 lertsenem/rsync-server
By default, rsync server accepts a connection only from +192.168.0.0/16+ and
+22.214.171.124/12+ for security reasons. You can override this behaviour via the
+ALLOW+ environment variable, like this:
$ docker run -d -p 873 -e ALLOW='10.0.0.0/8 x.x.x.x/y' lertsenem/rsync-server
Use the +USERNAME+ and +PASSWORD+ environment variable to set a user and a
password for the rsync server.
