Thanks for the reply. I have a couple of more questions and would
appreciate some response:
I can't ping to the remote server in the new setup.
enif >> ping ldas-sw.ligo.caltech.edu
PING ldas-sw.ligo.caltech.edu (22.214.171.124) from 192.168.11.25 :
56(84) bytes of data.
--- ldas-sw.ligo.caltech.edu ping statistics ---
210 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% loss, time 208999ms
Question : Is it a bare minimum requirement that I should be able to ping
the remote rsync server in order to be able to rsync ?
Question : Is it true that I can't ping the rsync server because my proxy
server is not on it's access list ?
Question : Other than getting my proxy server's IP on the access list of
the remote rsync server, what settings are required on my local machine.
Thanks a lot again,
