FAQ
I'm trying to use the CentOS server for windows backups. I want to use
rsync to get the data over there. I downloaded cwrsync, but I'm having
issues getting it to work. I keep getting: "Disconnecting: Timeout,
server not responding." Has anyone seen anything like this? Here is a
transcript:

C:\Documents and Settings\Russ>rsync -vvvvvvv /cygdrive/c/temp/xr
backup-db@192.
168.1.5:/home/backup-db/test
cmd= machine2.168.1.5 userºckup-db path=/home/backup-db/test
cmd[0]=ssh cmd[1]=-l cmd[2]ºckup-db cmd[3]2.168.1.5 cmd[4]=rsync
cmd[5]=--s
erver cmd[6]=-vvvvvvv cmd[7]=. cmd[8]=/home/backup-db/test
opening connection using ssh -l backup-db 192.168.1.5 rsync --server
-vvvvvvv .
/home/backup-db/test
backup-db@192.168.1.5's password:
Disconnecting: Timeout, server not responding.
_exit_cleanup(code , file=rsync.c, line$2): entered
rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at rsync.c(242) [sender]
_exit_cleanup(code , file=rsync.c, line$2): about to call exit(255)

And on the server, in secure.log I get:
May 2 18:08:58 localhost sshd[4337]: Accepted password for backup-db
from 192.168.1.36 port 3392 ssh2
May 2 18:08:58 localhost sshd[4337]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session
opened for user backup-db by (uid=0)
May 2 18:08:58 localhost sshd[4339]: fatal: Write failed: Connection
reset by peer
May 2 18:08:58 localhost sshd[4337]: pam_unix(sshd:session): session
closed for user backup-db

I'm using "rsync version 2.6.7 protocol version 29" on the client. I
used the lates (2.6.9 I believe), and downgraded from there, trying to
get it to work.

    cwrsync, but I'm having issues getting it to work. I keep
    getting: "Disconnecting: Timeout, server not responding."
    I've seen similar errors related to windows firewall. You may
    want to disable win firewall or anything else that may be
    interfering from that side.

    I'm not running any firewalls AFAIK. I disabled mcafee, but the error persists. I even tried a different os (win 2003, no firewall, no antivirus) and I'm still getting the same problem. Any way to troubleshoot? I tried wireshark, but I all I are are encrypted packets and a rst at the end from the client.

    Also the error pops up intantrneously, no timeout. It then hangs until I ctrl-c out of it.

    Ssh works fine btw. I can use it and get a shell.

    I looked at the rsync.c file, but couldn't locate that error text anywhere. Is that an error from rsync or ssh? Is there a way to tell it not to use ssh to eliminate it as a problem?

    I just downloaded a current cwrsync and was able to cd into its bin
    directory and 'rsync -av . root@centos_box:/tmp/test' without any
    problems. Maybe you have a problem with paths or another copy of the
    cygwin.dll somewhere.

    I checked for any other versions of cygwin1.dll, and although there were
    a few, they weren't in the path. I finally got process monitor and
    process explorer and saw that for some reason it was using hlcap.dll. I
    guess HTTPLook caused yet another problem. Thanks to everyone that
    helped. Does anyone know of a program like httplook for windows that
    doesn't break everything?

    I'm not quite sure what it does (its home page seems to redirect to
    something in Russian), but if you want generic network sniffer, try
    wireshark: http://www.wireshark.org/.

    I do have wireshark, but HTTPLook is better in that it captures only
    HTTP traffic, which is all I'm interested in. It organizes it in a nice
    timeline of requests and responses and I can see exactly what went on
    for each request.

    You can specify a 'port 80' filter on the capture with wireshark, then
    arrange/filter/view the data about any way you might want. If you don't
    care much about the network layer you can 'follow stream' which will
    show a color-coded content-only view.
