A good day to you all. i've installed rsync-2.5.6 on a Red Hat 9.0 box(server) and am using rsync 2.5.6 on a Red Hat 6.2 box(client). In the middle of the rsync transfer, i get the error on the client saying that the server unexpectedly close the connection. Upon checking the logs on the rsync server, i found this entry:
Oct 10 14:39:38 linux01 rsyncd[9266]: rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 4096 bytes: phase "unknown": Connection reset by peer
Any idea what this means? The client is running rsync with the -ar --partial --delete options.
