My name is Salim Soormally.  I have downloaded rsync from your web site (
rsync-2.1.0-SCO3.2v4.2BIN.tar.gz ).  We are using SCO Unix Sys V - Release  I will describe the system more at the bottom of the email.

I have un-tared the program, performed the ./configure and make.  Everything
went successful.  I have even included it in the path.

However when using it, everytime i have obtaining the error message ;

Unix486.AWDOM: Unix486.AWDOM: cannot open
unexpected EOF in read_timeout

The commands rcp / rexecd / rlogin is working normally.

The command i used for rcp is;

root> rcp Unix486.AWDOM:/u/peg/IDA/pglog.dat /u/peg

The copy is made successfully.  I wanted to make use of rsync, because i
have noticed that it contains many many many intersting functions which rcp
does not have.  Could you please advise me what is going wrong in it ?

System Setup:

I have got 2 Unix servers ( same operating system as mentioned above ) ;

1. Machine 1 has got IP address and it's system name is
2. Machine 2 has got IP address and it's system name is

Machine 2 has been setup so that in case Machine 1 is down, we automatically
restore the data from tape and start the system.  However tape is always the
convenient isue, the reason why i wanted to schedule different intervals of
copying the data from Machine 1 to Machine 2.

In case you have any questions, please do not hesitate.

Many thanks for your help,

Awaiting your prompt reply,

Thank you & best regards.
