- Subject: News on rsync/ssh hang up?
I'm having a problem with rsync over ssh: it randomly hangs. I had been
using it for many years with a couple of scripts to backup my laptops,
but currently it randomly hangs (1).
I've been searching the mailing list, and seems that some other people
is also suffering, and some workarounds are provided, such as
ssh-tunneling + rsyncd. I am currently using another workaround: samba
mount + local rsync; however this does not behave as fine as rsync + ssh
(for example, it does not preserve symlinks).
Is there any (good) news that my search could not found? Any plan for 1.7?
(1) I do not know if it matters, but up to now (when it never hanged) I
was using a Linux ssh server in the remote side, and currently (when it
hangs) the server is winxp+cygwin as well. So maybe the problem is in
the "server" side of the procedure.
