rsync 2.5.5 and rsync 2.5.6 both work fine for me.
Is it possible that rsync is already running as a service?
It won't show up in cygwin's ps. For example, when rsync
is running via cygrunsrv, if I type:
it exits with no error, but ps shows no process. But rsync is
indeed running, eg:
tcsh 438% telnet localhost 873
Connected to XXXX.
Escape character is '^]'.
@ERROR: protocol startup error
Connection closed by foreign host.
You can also see rsync.exe in the windows task manager.
You could also try a different port number to see if there is
someone else on 873:
craigslt 461% ps aux | egrep rsync
craigslt 462% rsync --daemon --port=1234
craigslt 463% ps aux | egrep rsync
4020 1 4020 4020 ? 1005 23:29:08 /bin/rsync
