Thanks for the help. I did go through quite a few docs but could not
figure that out. Thanks again.
However, after setting [cdrive], I am getting the following error:
admx::nkapoor> rsync -v guest at testor::cdrive/Temp/pix.log .
@ERROR: chdir failed
read error: Connection reset by peer
Is there a log file that I could use to see what exaclty is going on ?
Or a debug level that could be set to see the trail ?
