I previously used cwRsync to backup files from WIndows XP to a Linux server
Now I am trying to use cwRsync on a Windows 7 PC (64-bit) to backup to a different Linux server
I installed the free version of cwRsync and set up the environment as in the included cwrsync.cmd except I set CWRSYNCHOME=%PROGRAMFILES(X86)%\CWRSYNC as that's where cwRsync installs on 64-bit Windows.
I can ping the Linux server by name and I can resolve it's IP-address using nslookup but when I run rsync I get an error message
C> ssh -V OpenSSH_5.3p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8l 5 Nov 2009 C> rsync -rvz cygdrive/d/Foo xxxx:/home/RGB/Bar ssh: Could not resolve hostname xxxx: Non-recoverable failure in name resolution rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender] rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(610) [sender= 3.0.7]
cwRsync includes both ssh and plink in it's bin subdirectory. WHen I run ssh directly I get the same error. However if I run plink directly it connects OK.
- Is there a way to get rsync to use plink?
- Is there a way to get cwRsync's ssh to resolve hostnames correctly?
