I have found that there is an incompatibility between rsync over ssh and
ZoneAlarm Security Suite. I use the command as follows
rsync -rvc -e "ssh -l testusr" /cygdrive/c/testdir 192.168.1.2:/home/testusr
I'm asked if I want to allow rsync to access the network. Than it just hangs
forever. I'm not asked if I want to allow ssh to access the network even
though the process is started.
If I use ssh or rsync by themselves it works with no problems.
Zone Labs told that they don't support emulation software.
Can somebody help with finding a workarround.
I'm willing to do all the work my skills will allow.
rsync over ssh works with ALL these firewalls with just clicking âallowâ
twice(no other config changes).

F-Secure Internet Security 2006
It only fails with the ZoneAlarm Security Suite (6.1.737, 6.0.677, 5.5.094)
family of products from ZoneLabs. If anybody wants to try it out
go to zonelabs<dot>com and download the 15 day trial version.
I am a huge supporter of the open source community and want to make this
product as reliable as possible.
