Cygwin rsync to RH rsync server

I have tried every version I could find of rsync for cygwin and I get
the same issue. I'm connecting over a switched 100MB Ethernet on a
private network, so I don't believe the connection is being lost. I'm
not familiar with strace how does one go about using that?



PS I can get the module list fine but once I move into a module to get
the file list I get the list and then it dumps like before.

It looks like the network connection dropped, and that is likely to be
out of rsync's control.  See #3 on
for suggestions about what to try.  In particular, you might want to
upgrade the receiving rsync and strace both sides.
