Instructions on how to set up a Kicksecure Download Mirror

rsync from[edit]


  • Available over encrypted clearnet port 874. (Default port by openssl-rsync.)
  • Available over encrypted clearnet port 1874. (Default port by Debian ftpsync package, rsync-ssl-tunnel script.)
  • Available over encrypted onion, port 873. (rsync default port.)

Security advice:

  • Encrypted rsync is better.
  • rsync over onion is best.

Commands below use for testing:

  • --dry-run


  • Later for production you might wish to drop --dry-run and change the destination folder from ~/kicksecure to a folder of your choice such as /var/www/kicksecure.


sudo apt install rsync

unencrypted rsync[edit]

Deprecated. Please use either,

  • A) TLS encrypted rsync, or
  • B) rsync over onion as documented below.

encrypted rsync over TLS[edit]

rsync-ssl --dry-run --recursive --delete --times --perms rsync:// ~/kicksecure
