Subject: rsync - Version ( rsync-2.1.0-SCO3.2v4.2BIN.tar.gz )
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
126.96.36.199. 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 ?
I have got 2 Unix servers ( same operating system as mentioned above ) ;
1. Machine 1 has got IP address 10.0.0.10 and it's system name is
2. Machine 2 has got IP address 10.0.0.3 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.
