I have a RH 8.0 box which issues the following command to a Windows
machine running the most recent version of cygwin. Both boxes have been
updated to rsync 2.6.6 and I use the following command from the LINUX
BOX (SSH keygen agent is setup for passwordless logins and the IP is
aliased under /.ssh/config)
rsync -avz --delete --progress -e "ssh"
userName at WIndowsBoxIP:/cygdrive/e/www/Apache/htdocs/
Sometime rsync hangs on getting the file list (~1400 Files in many
Most times the transfer starts and hangs on the first large file
Once the rsync actually completed.
There appears to be nothing unusual when using -avvvz
/cygdrive/e on the WIndows 2K box is a local drive (not a network share)
I have this exact same problem on two different Win2K machiens (Win2K
Pro, and Win2K Advanced Server)
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.....
Thanks In Advance,
