An avid rsync fan here...
I've been using rsync between 2 Solaris 8 x86 boxes for over a year now with
I updated box#1 from 2.4.6 to this 2.5.5rc1 and box#2 still running 2.4.6
still worked great.
I just updated box #2 to 2.5.5rc1 as well, and it still works great.
Using gcc 2.95 to compile on both ends.
Thought you'd appreciate this info...
