Question on a long filename

How many characters of the file name can be transferred thru rsync?
255? I am running rsync on solaris 5.8 machine, I got the following
error messages:

ERROR: dsync: dsync1:/import/data/ to dsync2:/import/data2/
mkstemp  failed: File name too long
rsync error: partial transfer (code 23) at main.c(578)

The filename in that directory is over 220 characters, is there 
a problem on a long filename?
