Hi Randy, 
Thanks a lot for the reply.
But I'm transferring the large files.
It's just a 1kb file that I'm trying to transfer.
The command I'm using to copy the files is:
"$rsync -avz -e ssh
username@<windowsserver_ip>:/rsync/rsync.txt ." 
where "rysnc" is the directory on the windows server.
I'd appreciate if you can tell me if I missed anything
on the installation or any of the configuration.
