Following up on a previous thread.
Using an XP SP2 client and server over an SSH tunnel with Bitvise SSHD and Tunnelier.
Client is using:
rsync -vv -t -r --no-blocking-io --fuzzy --port=9099 --inplace --exclude-from=/cygdrive/c/docume~1/Thanos~1/MyDocu~1/Settings/backup/nobackup.txt /cygdrive/c/docume~1/Thanos~1/ 127.0.0.1::EpicurusBackup
and Server is configured like this:
path = /cygdrive/e/EpicurusBackup
read only = false
transfer logging = yes
I run this every night, and once or twice a week, it will just hang somewhere in the middle.
I am not familiar with BitVise SSHD and Tunnelier. Do you get same problems when you use ssh/plink tunnels by using Secure Channel Wizard ?
I have not tried any other tunneling mechanism.
I recommend to use FAQ How can I secure connections between windows rsync clients and cwRsync servers ? in your case.
I have also been using an older version of cwrsync to sync fom my XP machine to Linux using ssh. It has been working without a glitch for many months.
However recently I downloaded the latest cwrsync and installed it.
Now it hangs every time during the tranfer. I tried deleting all files on the destination machine (Linux) and it also hangs on files that were previously transferred OK.
Since the script has not changed, I am sure it is this new version causing problems.
Silly me, I deleted the old version and now I can't get the older one back. Not mentioning that I am not sure which version I had been using previously anyway.
I have updated cwRsync 2.0.3 packages with a newly compiled rsync 2.6.6, which seems to solve hang problems.
Download 2.0.3a packages from Link Manager at right side and check if your problem disappear.
