Yes, rsync with ssh, like this:

rsync -e "/usr/bin/ssh" -auvz /home/anne/Documentation/ 
anne borg:/home/anne/Documentation

I don't understand why two days ago I could send several sets of docs over 
with just one password entry, but I can't now.  Caching just didn't seem to 
be working.  It seems to be now, so hopefully putting that entry into 
Xclients has fixed it.
