If the other machine has an rsync server running then you don't need the
-e /usr/bin/ssh

to rsync 7.3 and updates from the public rsync server on
mirror.dulug.duke.edu into the current directory.

you would run:

rsync -av mirror.dulug.duke.edu::archive/pub/yum-repository/7.3 .
rsync -av mirror.dulug.duke.edu::archive/pub/yum-repository/updates/7.3 .
