Well, the way I did it was set up a share on the Win box and then smbmount
that into the Linux file ssystem somewhere then just handle them as if
they are Linux to Linux rsyncs.
This is the cron line:
0 22 * * * rsync -avz /home/notes /home/acauser/administration/data
/home/acauser/sync_space 1>/tmp/rsync 2>&1 ; cat /tmp/rsync |mail -s
"Rsync from $(uname -n)" root@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
The first is a genuine Linux "share", In fact it is Lotus Domino running
under Linux on the box on which this cron job runs
The second and third are two shares mounted from one Win box as read only
The fourth is a read-only share from another Win box
The fifth is a read-write Win share on yet another Win box onto which
everything gets rsync'd.

UNC paths seem to work in the format of //host/share\path/ but I cannot get this to work correctly either.
