expect does not expect anything
 
#!/usr/bin/expect -f

spawn rsync -r --progress a u@bla.com:/b
expect "assword:"
send "password
"
expect "hostname"


why does this script stop while rsync is still transferring?


(hostname is the name of the host in the prompt)


and, yes, it HAS TO BE done using expect... any answer including the word "keys" will not be helpful



Thanks,

Dirk

From "man rsync":

Some modules on the remote daemon may require authentication. If so,
you will receive a password prompt when you connect. You can avoid the
password prompt by setting the environment variable RSYNC_PASSWORD to
the password you want to use or using the --password-file option. This
may be useful when scripting rsync.

WARNING: On some systems environment variables are visible to all
users. On those systems using --password-file is recommended.
