Hi everyone. I tried the advise Matt gave me about the netcat and got
"@RSYNC: 30.0" (i updated it today tryng to fix this problem). So i
gather that the daemon is working fine.
I have this doubt: I´m running Ubuntu 7.10 (gutsy) 64bit in this box. Is
it possible that rsync on a 32bit Ubuntu cannot talk to rsync on a 64bit
Ubuntu? Is the package that different? Here are the tests i tried and
their results, maybe you can give me some clues. I have unrestricted
access to all boxes except for the 7.04 one.
Source - Dest
Ubuntu 6.10 32 bits - Ubuntu 7.04 32 bits - Connection OK
XP +SP2 32 bits - Ubuntu 6.10 32 bits - Connection OK
Ubuntu 7.10 64 bits - Ubuntu 6.10 32 bits - Daemon not answering
XP +SP2 32 bits - Ubuntu 7.10 64 bits - Daemon not answering
Please help me! My flimsy backup strategy depends on the 64bit box
rsyncing to the 6.10 one.
