There's a limit to how many files you can glob with a wildcard.  Just
remove the wildcard and let rsync transfer the whole directory:

    rsync offers at sdnvpn::gsh/ .

While you're at it, you should probably add (at least) the -t option,
which will preserve timestamps and make future updated copies faster (or
just use -a).
