Rsync over SSH not working with ZoneAlarm Security Suite


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

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).
ZoneAlarm Pro 6.1.737
ZoneAlarm Pro 5.5.094
ZoneAlarm Pro 5.1.033
ZoneAlarm Pro 4.5.594
ZoneAlarm Pro 4.0.146
ZoneAlarm 3.7
Norton Internet Security 2006
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.
