    Thanks for this tutorial. I am a beginner in the server world and i find this quite useful.

    I have some questions and if you can answer that would be great.

    I need to transfer data from one remote server to another.
    rsync -av root@192.168.0.100:/var/www/something root@192.168.0.200:/var/www/something

    is this going to work?
    also is there any option to run rsync command and then log out from my console (leaving rsync in progress). I need to transfer around 150GB and it would be great if i dont have to leave my terminal on.

    Kind regards
