Hello. I've spent hours trying to read and understand how to setup rsync using SSH mode. I finally was able to ssh into the remote server (to which I'm backing up) without entering a password. At that point, I setup an rsync task in FreeNAS (client) which successfully ran...once! I edited the rsync task to change directories on both the client (FreeNAS box) and server (Synology) and received the following error:
Connection to Remote Host was successful but failed to verify Remote Path. Process Error: Process exited with non-zero exit status 1

I restarted the rsync service on both the server and client, I set the directories back to what they were during the first/only successful rsync task run, but nothing has changed, I keep getting the same error. Any helpful suggestions? Thanks.
