Full Description


A volume container using rsync.


First, you can launch a volume container exposing a volume with rsync.

$ CID=$(docker run -d -p 10873:873 -v /tmp/:/data --name rsyncd metabrainz/docker-rsyncd)

You can connect to rsync server inside a container like this:

$ rsync rsync://<docker>:10873/
volume          docker volume

To sync:

$ rsync -avP /path/to/dir rsync://<docker>:10873/volume/

Next, you can launch a container connected with the volume under /data.

$ docker run -it --volumes-from $CID ubuntu /bin/sh


In default, rsync server accepts a connection only from and for security reasons.

$ docker run -d -p 10873:873 -e ALLOW=' x.x.x.x/y' nabeken/docker-volume-container-rsync
