gigabytes) files, pushing them from a Win2k client to
a Win2k machine running the rsync daemon.  Both
machines have the CYGWIN environmental variable set to

Below is the full session.  There is only one file in
the MyDatabase directory on the client, but it's 2.2
gig.  Once I get this working, I want to set it up to
exclude files in that directory matching the filename

If I do a dry run, it appears that it will work
successfully (attached at the very end of this
message), but when I remove the --dry-run, it fails.

Thanks in advance.
