Sorry, I thought that was clear.
In this case, I was just inputting "rsync" with no flags or args.
With args, it is producing this result:
bash-2.05b$ rsync -avc --progress --stats rsh="ssh -l adminuser"
adminuser at hostA:/My/Shared/Volume/
adminuser at hostA password:
building file list ...
rsync: link_stat "/usr/bin/rsh=ssh -l adminuser" failed: No such file or
rsync: link_stat "/usr/bin/rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/rsync" failed: No
such file or directory (2)
And it continues to build file list before I escape using <Ctrl-C>
Source machine is a Win2K Server and target is Panther client.
It was also appearing along with another error when attempting to sync a
loadset between a Win2K Server machine and Linux, but the cause of the
other error has been identified and resolved
