Experienced Linux user, Android noob.
I'd like to be able to use rsync to transfer files from my Linux desktop to my Sony Xperia Tablet Z and initiate the transfers from my Linux desktop.
A blog explained how to do it by first installing an SSH app, which I have done. It works fine, I can now SSH from my Linux desktop to the tablet.
Now I need to copy the rsync binary to the tablet and to make sure it's in the PATH and has "755" permissions set. Over SSH I was able to see what my PATH is, but I can't copy the rsync binary to anywhere in the PATH as I run into permission denied problems.
How do I copy the rsync binary to within my PATH and set 755 permissions? I really do not want to ROOT my device.
PS. I don't want to use "rsync backup for Android" as the rsync commands can only be run from the Android device.
