Description of problem:
My 2.4.6 has a feature (bug) that the
"--timeout=<seconds>" given on the client side breaks the
transfer after <seconds> - no matter how active the transfer is.
There was somekind of patch for this in the message archives
of the mailing list -
I have not tried to apply it.
Last time I read - the patch was not yet included in 2.4.7 pre.
Set timeout=0 (or no --timeout at all) - and give a try.
I do not know what the timeout means on the server side.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rsync --timeout=10 /tmp root@host:/tmp
Actual Results: you get timeout while the connection is still verry
active(it is a know rsync bug)
check ther mailinglist archive
Expected Results: it soulden't stop transverring
I think you get the picture:)
al though it is a low priority bug it would be nice to see a fix
package(sinds a fix is presend)
I can't reproduce this with 2.5.0 (it's available at
http://people.redhat.com/notting/rsync/, and will be in rawhide soon); does this
work for you?
