            Bug ID: 11803
           Summary: rsync protocol (selection/compatibility) problem
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.1.2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
          Assignee: wayned at samba.org
          Reporter: skraw at ithnet.com
        QA Contact: rsync-qa at samba.org

If using rsync as daemon for various newer and older rsync clients it seems the
latest version (3.1.2 protocol 31) does not work together well with older
versions, especially protocol 26 from 2.5.6. It does not connect. How did you
expect a user should configure the daemon for such a use? It seems there is no
protocol setting option in the conf file. So one cannot restrict an incoming
connection from an older rsync client to a certain protocol. The global
--protocol is pretty useless for this...
