Only just joined the list specifically to reply about this.
On Windows 7 running rsync over ssh to a UNIX server I am repeatedly
getting the "connection reset by peer" error, causing rsync to fail. The
error occurs regularly but at inconsistent intervals. In an attempt to
get around it I wrote a rsync retry script, but even setting the number
of retries the script makes for each of the half-dozen rsync commands to
10 does not guarantee success. I was beginning to look for another Win 7
rsync/ssh solution when I decided to check the mailing list archives.
Has there been progress with this over the last few weeks? Rsycing to
the same UNIX server from my Linux machine is always fine though that
enjoys significantly faster bandwidth than the Win 7 PC (although that
has a decent ADSL connection, note that the Win 7 PC is not using wireless).
Is there anything I can try to resolve this as a working
cygwin/rsync/ssh solution looks like my ideal scenario. Cygwin newbie,
but technically proficient software engineer.
