I made a mistake and wrote internet instead of network. Either way I think 
you missed
my point which I think is still valid. When rsync is blocked by ZA, it 
immediately comes back
with an error message. When I use it in conjunction with SSH it should give 
me an error
message also, but instead it just sits there forever with no error or 

I appologize if I'm doing things all wrong regarding the protocol of the 
email list. I've
never posted before.
