Re: rsync immediately hangs when connecting via ssh (still trying to fix, revisited from Aug 07)

Unfortunately rsync is a lost cause on cygwin until the underlying pipe
issue or whatever it is can be fix. Give this has been about for years
I wouldn't hold you breath for this. Look for an alternative like
rsync daemon mode or using SFU.

N.B. Its not just rsync scp under cygwin is also produces totally
erratic transfer rates and stalls due to the same issue.

I can scp/ssh fine to the target with ssh keys installed or not, only
rsync hangs immediately.
