Description Eugene Kanter 2001-10-01 23:11:20 EDT
Description of Problem:

rsync does not understand '[]'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

$ rsync 'beta@ftp.beta.redhat.com::beta/enigma/iso/enigma-i386-disc[12].iso'
Password:<enter password>

Actual Results:

ERROR: module is read only
unexpected EOF in read_timeout

Expected Results:

-rw-r--r--   677961728 2001/09/24 13:27:57 enigma-i386-disc1.iso
-rw-r--r--   669429760 2001/09/24 13:43:48 enigma-i386-disc2.iso

Additional Information:

If rsync 2.5.6-5 is built without patches, this particular functionality
works OK.
I did not investigate which patch causes the problem.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-10-02 02:22:02 EDT
Probably the patch for 51801....
Comment 2 Eugene Kanter 2001-10-02 08:48:36 EDT
I tried on original 2.4.6:

$ touch a
$ mkdir destination
$ rsync '[a]' destination
link_stat [a] : No such file or directory

However with redhat rsync server
$ rsync 'user@server::section/[a]' .
works as expected.

patches from RH 7.2 reverse the problem, not eliminate it.
Comment 3 Pekka Savola 2001-10-02 10:05:00 EDT
when parsing an ipv6 address, it's usually enclosed in []'s, like
[3ffe:ffff::1]/64.  If the ipv6
support changed the cndline parser in this aspect, it might have broken
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-30 15:43:24 EST
Is this only a problem talking to rsync servers?
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2001-11-30 15:51:43 EST
This seems to work for me with 2.5.0 (http://people.redhat.com/notting/rsync/) -
please reopen if it fails for you.
