Thanks Kenny, I tried this out but unfortunatly still with
no success. I have my doubts whether this is a
cross-platform issue. The reason why I say this is because
if I use rsync over ssh:
rsync -e ssh -avz gandalf::home_dirs/ .
Then the mirroring works correctly, when not running rsync
over ssh then rsync freezes or basicaly slows down to the
point that is mise well of frozen ( less then 5k a second
on a Local LAN ). The reason why I dont wont to use rsync
over ssh is I do not wish to have an additional account for
rsync on the rsync server, I would prefer to use the rsync
user/password authentication method where a valid user
account on the server is not required.
