rsync stops/hangs (from windows to debian)

Awesome suggestion, but unfortunately it doesn't work in my case. =(

I have noticed, however, that rsync does work from some of the windows servers to the Debian servers.  So even though our main file store can't send files directly to our Debian servers, I've set up one of the windows servers to then rsync the data over to the Debian servers.  For now, that should hold out until I can get all our servers replaced with Debian.
