I want to syncrhonize Veeam backups with a remote Qnap nas appliance. Veeam does a reverse incremental backup so it updates the main image (c. 200GB) every day and keeps reverse incremental files to go back to a previous state.
The Veeam backup server is a Windows XP PC on with I run the following cmd file:
REM Make environment variable changes local to this batch file
REM where to find rsync and related files
SET CWRSYNCHOME=C:\Program Files\cwRsync

I am so frustrated after fooling with this for a day i can't even believe it. We used an older version of CopSSH for years on a Windows 2003 server without any problems. So when that server died and we built a new server (Windows 2008 R2) I of course bought CopSSH. For the life of me i can't get it to do a simple thing of creating a user and having that user connect to the server. I searched your KB and found that UAC can be a problem. So we disabled that, did reboots, reinstalled copssh, recreated the user. Nothing got it to work. I also saw in the

I need to change the home folder for users of COPSSH. I change the home folder /home/user: to for example /cygdrive/c: in the passwd file and everything works fine.
But when I open the control panel the home folder is reset to the default /home/user:.
Because of this I can never open the control panel when COPSSH is installed and configured, becuase then I will loose all home folders configured for all users.
Is it supposed to be like this, or is this a bug? Is this something you can fix?

When using the interface to mange public keys, duplicate keys are created and propagated among users.
1 key per user
First user has 1 key,
Second user has 2 key (his and first user)
Third user has 3 keys (his and the previous user)
and so on.
How to reproduce.
Create user A
Create user B
Select user A and create a public key for him using the +Add button
Close the "Authorized public keys for A" window

i've tried to change the account used in the COPSSH windows service, using a special service domain account instead of a local account. Once this change has been made, the SFTP connections do not work any more:
For exampls, I changed account used from .\COPSSH to MYDOMAIN\COPSSH, which is in the local server's administrator's group.
The windows service starts properly, but when I try to connect from an SFTP client, I get the following type of messages:

Once some events have been logged the control panel becomes too slow to use. It can take many minutes for the gui to start without any indication that the program is loading. Could you move the event log status checking code to a background thread so it does not affect the performance of the main code.

after navigating thru the wizard, the key is not created / added.
when a OpenSSH key is created, the client generated by the wizard to perform remote access does not opens OpenSSH format key file.
however, if the OpenSSH key is converted using PuTTYgen, then the same file created previously by the wizard knows how to handle the key file and opens the connection.

Can't access Windows 7 cwRsync server from Linux.
I have installed cwRsync-Server_5.0.1 using the downloaded installer on a Windows 7 64 pc.
Started the service after allowing port 873 in Windows Firewall.

I believe I have run into a bug in your cwrsync installer.
When using a custom service account name with a random password it doesn't seem to like with a '\' or a '*'. I am not sure which one does it, but one of them seems to be the culprit.
I don't actually need any action taken on this, I just thought you would like to know.

I installed Copssh on my Windows 7 laptop. I am trying to download an image file using SFTP to an Ethernet switch. The file size is about 72 Mbytes. I expect the load to take about 2 hours. It started to load good, but after 1 hour, I got this message. Previously, I had created a very small file and I successfully copied it to my Ethernet switch using the SFTP server. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you.

I get a rsync: rename Permission denied(13) error on files which name starts with a ".". I think it is random (ie, sometimes the file does not trip the error, but sometimes it does). I have taken a look around and apparantly this is a known issue with rsync. I am using cwrsync 5.01 update 10.
Below is a copy of one of the error lines I will get.

I'm having trouble connecting to win2k8r2 x64 server where PortForMe package is installed. After setting up the package and generating the client exe file I'm able to successfully connect to the server via PK authentication. When I click on the RDP icon, I get the following message:

if I copy files from one machine to another machine (both connected with 1GBit/s), rsync only uses 25 MBit/s (about 3 MBytes/s). This is very slowly. I tried another software named Deltacopy, which uses rsync and cygwin too. It copied the files with more then 20 MB/s. One one side I installed the server, on the other side, I used the client. What can I do to increase the speed? Using the other software is one option for me, but I paid 39$ to you and I think, you can help me with the problem.

My domain is lsb and my username is pjee. I added this in the control panel. I am trying to download a file from the SFTP server. When I checked the log it says this:
"input_userauth_request: invalid user pjee [preauth]"
Also, from the other end I get this: "Permission denied <keyboard-interactive>"
I am using my Windows 7 username and password. Maybe I need to do more setup?

Have just installed COPSSH with downloaded Copssh_4.3.0_Installer.exe on a 64bit windows server 2008 R2 . Installation seemed ok but can't open Control Panel.
At startmeny Programs Copssh cygwin starts (02. Start a Unix BASH Shell) alsu 03 start a windows CMD shell but 01. COPSSH Control Panel just shows the timeglass for 1 second and then nothing more.

Have been experiencing the same problem for a couple of months now. Nagios will run fine for a few days or even a week or 2 and then suddenly refuse to start.
The only solution until now is to save the full etc folder, remove and reinstall Nagwin, then copy back the etc folder. That always fixes the problem but is not so convenient.
Please assist based on the information below.
When the problem appears I see a nagios.exe.stackdump file appear which has the following contents:

during a configuration session I used a modified config-file
the two uncommented options didn't work
I used --signature hwkno --file logo to get the logo-file copied - shouldn't it be copied per config-file?
defining new/additional fields did work! So the config-file is parsed some how.

I'm running the latest copSSH on windows server 2008 R2. Whenever I click on anything in the GUI (tab, field, etc). The CPU on the system goes to 100% for 5+ minutes. I can't do anyting in the GUI. The product is pretty much worthless, unless I can get this fixed.
