I'm trying to rsync my labtop pc (let's assume A-computer) with my
desktop pc (let's assume C-computer) through our firewall.
In between there is one computer (let's assume B-computer) that has an
open port, so I theoretically could connect via a tunnel.
I checked the SSH- website and internet and so on but did not find an
answer that works.
I tried the solution I found on the net:
When I run ssh -v -L 873:C-computer:873 myname at B-computer and get
connected to B-computer without any problems.
When I subsequently run in a new window:
rsync -v /cygdrive/d/folder/ 127.0.0.1:: cygdrive/folder
I get the following error: Connection reset by peer.
In the tunneling window teh following error appears: administrativetly
prohibited: open failed
I'm kind of new in the SSH-RSYNC world and don't know how to solve the
I assume it is an SSH problem since the problem persist when I run: ssh
myname at localhost -p 873.
Thanx for your help in advance,
