I have MobaSSH installed on two Windows (XP and Vista) machines. When I do rsync over ssh it often hangs. I've read this happens with cygwin/rsync/ssh (MobaSSH is cygin based). Is there any known fix or alternate ssh/rsync server I could use?
I use rsync + ssh on Cygwin 1.7 (the beta release) and haven't encountered this problem yet. Most of my rsync is a Windows machine pulling via rsync from a Linux machine.
There are articles out there discussing possible issues.
A relatively recent thread on the Cygwin list offers some alternatives, and again they iterate using the rsyncd.
Here's another walkthrough of setting up rsyncd.
Between 2 Windows machines I've always found it easier to use Windows File Sharing to copy the files.
