using rsync

I'm just trying to use rsync to retreive the file from different servers with script. i want to look for a file, if the file exists, then retreive the file from different servers, and put it in one file. I have the following command.
Code:
 rsync -v -e ssh jerry@openbsd.nixcraft.in:~/webroot.txt /tmp 

any idea how to write the script. Thanks

If you've got SSH, and want to receive only one file from a fixed location:
Code:
scp <user>@<host>:webroot.txt /tmp/.

An example would be:
Code:
for i in srv1 srv2 srv3
do
    scp <user>@${i}:webroot.txt /tmp/.
    cat /tmp/webroot.txt >> /tmp/webroot_all.txt
done

Code:
for i in srv1 srv2 srv3
do
    ssh <user>@${i} 'cat /path../webroot.txt 2>&1' >> /tmp/webroot_all.txt
done
