I apologize about pasting the cygcheck output instead of attaching it.
ZoneAlarm did ask if I'd like to let rsync access the internet and I did
say to allow it. However it never asks it ssh.exe should be allowed to
access the net. Lastly I don't think the port is the problem because
even when I shut down ZoneAlarm I get the same result. I have been
able to use rsync just by itself to sync with a rsync server with
ZoneAlarm still running.
