rsync process never finishes

Tue Sep 3 15:22:00 EST 2002


I've got a Debian 3.0 machine from which I initiate rsync connections over
ssh to winNT/2k boxen, where sshd is running as a service, to grab files
from the windows machines.
I don't get any error from either side of the connection. The directory I
indicate is transferred as well as every sub directory, just not any of the
files in the sub directories. The process seems to be running but it's not
getting anything done past the directory structure and the 2 files that are
located in the top level directory. Doesn't appear to be permission's
related. I've been searching through various email archives all weekend
without being any closer to an answer, any help is much appreciated.

On the Linux box I have: openssh_3.4p1-5, rsync-2.5.6cvs
On the NT side I have: cygwin-1.3.12-4, openssh-3.4p1-5 rsync-2.5.5-1
The command is -
# rsync -avv user at winntbox:/cygdrive/d  /backup/
