Trying now, for the first time.

Choosing the "Rsync" method, I am advised to :

	rsync -r --delete --exclude=2008 --exclude=mactex* 
rsync://somehost/some/path/ /your/local/dir

which using the information in :


and finding no UK mirror, I map to

	rsync -r --delete --exclude=2008 --exc
lude=mactex* rsync://guiling.fr/texlive/ h:\TeX\Live\2009\Mirror

whereupon I am told :

	The source and destination cannot both be remote.
rsync error: syntax or usage error (code 1) at 
1/src/rsync-3.0.4/main.c(1136) [receiver=3.0.4]

The error message is invariant with the direction of slashes
in "h:\TeX\Live\2009\Mirror"

Suggestions, please ?
