Description Greg Bailey 2002-02-20 12:55:00 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.4) Gecko/20011126

Description of problem:
When upgrading rsync from 2.4.6-2 (RedHat 7.1--RedHat 7.2 has same errata
version) to the latest errata version (2.4.6-10), the --address option stops
working.  As a RedHat mirror maintainer, my rsync scripts no longer work to
RedHat's servers because the connections originate from a different IP address.
 I verified with tcpdump that the origin IP is NOT the one specified with --address.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Upgrade rsync to latest errata version (2.4.6-10 as of writing)
2.  Attempt rsync with "--address" option.
3.  Notice with tcpdump that the source IP address is not the one specified

Actual Results:  In the case of mirroring RedHat's FTP site, I got "connection
reset by peer" messages.

Expected Results:  Should have successful rsync execution.

Additional info:

rsync script (excerpt):

rsync --address -av --delete \
  rhm1.redhat.com::redhat/linux/6.2/en/iso/ \


read error: Connection reset by peer

tcpdump Output:

10:45:51.419455 eth0 > > S
1047950309:1047950309(0) win 5840 <mss 1460,sackOK,timestamp 16279085

The above box has both AND configured.
