Timeout, server not responding

I have several WinXP laptops which have been backing up to a FreeBSD 6.0 
server via rsync for a good while now. Now one laptop is giving me 
grief. I am running cwRsync and invoking a remote rsync daemon via a 
shell command:

cmd /K "rsync.exe -avr --rsh=ssh --progress --stats --delete /cygdrive/d/"My 
Documents" user at server::user_data"

I get this error locally:

Timeout, server not responding

And on the server:

2007/01/24 11:46:18 [59320] connect from <FQDN> (
2007/01/24 11:46:18 [59320] rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 
bytes received so far) [receiver]
2007/01/24 11:46:18 [59320] rsync error: error in rsync protocol data 
stream (code 12) at io.c(462) [receiver=2.6.9]

I have been troubleshooting with a test directory both locally and 
remotely (client and server). I have also upgraded rsync on the server 
as well as re-installed cwRsync on the laptop.

Any comments welcome,
