If your ZA doesn't know the difference between local network addresses and internet addresses, it's not correctly configured.

 Having said that, since it's off-topic, we should take this across to the
cygwin-talk list, where it won't clutter up the main list with non-cygwin
stuff.  Please take note of the Reply-To: header if replying!


Hello again,

I had more time to make a case and prove to you that I am able to configure a
firewall correctly. I clean installed Windows 2000 SP4 with all the updates.
Next I installed Cygwin and the following firewalls.

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 also sent all
this info to tech support at Zone Labs.

I am a huge supporter of the open source community and want to make this product
as reliable as possible. I was never looking for a free firewall configuration

No one was suggesting you were.  Nor were we suggesting that you don't know
how to configure a firewall.  The point was simply that if some firewall(s)
didn't work as you expect, then that's either a firewall configuration issue
or a firewall bug.  Either way, it's not a Cygwin issue and, as a result, is
off-topic for this list.  Sounds to me like you're following the proper path
by contacting ZoneLabs with this issue.  It seems to me that your diligence
in researching this problem should be a benefit to them.
