- Subject: Problems with local rsync on cygwin w2k
I am getting errors when I try and do a dry-run of a local rsync on cygwin
on windows 2000. Here is an example command line:
/usr/bin/rsync --archive --dry-run --ignore-times --stats --verbose
It fails with the following messages:
rsync: read error: Connection reset by peer
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(151)
Any ideas of what is wrong? I've tried a few different combinations of
And actually, the reason I am doing the dry run is that local syncing via
rsync on cygwin is pretty slow. I wanted rsync to just figure out what
needs to be done, and then I'll use perl's File::Copy module which does a
system copy to actually copy the files, hoping this will be faster. I got
about a gig of stuff to move around, so its a big issue for me.
