Have you checked that rsync works on the shell of Windows to which ssh
Anyway, the error message should say "rsync (server side): not found" Or
even better: "Rsync program not found on server machine, please, give
the location using --rsync-path option".
Is it rsync development open to such patches? Does someone encourage me
to give it a try? Any other voluntaries?
