I rsync a remote destination which has a daily network interruption of round
about 5 minutes.
Is it possible to configure rsync to wait in such a case this 5 minutes and
continue the rsync as soon as the network connection is established again?

I use rsyncd with perl::rsync (backuppc) through a ssh tunnel.
