First, many thanks, this is something we obviously need.  Second, scp
and sftp work fine, but rsync does not:

$ rsync -avv 4396719-fatstack jcoomes at
opening connection using: ssh -l jcoomes rsync --server .

insecure -e option not allowed.
This account is restricted by rssh.
Allowed commands: scp sftp rsync

If you believe this is in error, please contact your system

rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(600) [sender=3.0.5]

I can live with scp, but rsync would be nice for partial transfers.
Has anyone else used rsync successfully?
