RSYNC Issues


I have been trying to copy over my Documents folder from my Laptop to my Desktop. It is copying over the files but RSYNC is timing out every 50 files or so. I have tried setting --timeout=180 to lengthen it and all that does is lengthen the amount of time it takes to fail.

After it timesout, if I go onto my laptop the network is unreachable until I run $ sudo ifconfig wlan0 down and then wait a few seconds for it to reset. Then I run RSYNC again and the same thing happens. I've had to reset it about 50 times already and it is not even half way done.

I did some research and one person asked about the versions:
Laptop: 3.0.7 Protocol 30
Desktop: 3.0.9 Protocol 30

I have tried to go into my laptop and upgrade but Synaptic is saying the newest version is 3.0.7 so I don't know why it isn't upgrading it.

Could someone help please?

I would try to launch the command from the other side. And maybe if possible use a wired connection instead of a wireless one.

I did try entering the command from the other side. Unfortunately, I got the same result. No matter what I do it fails because of the same issue.

I then created a share and mounted the network share and just copied the files over. It worked fine so the issue must be with RSYNC.

Out of curiosity, which was the rsync command, including options ?

rsyn -rav --timeout=5 -e "ssh" IP:~/Documents ~

and then the reverse

rsync -rav --timeout=5 -e "ssh" ~ IP:~/Documents

I tried both 10 and 180 for timeout too.

I managed to find the 3.0.7 version of rsync from the Natty repo and installed that on my precise machine.

Downgrading the RSYNC to version 3.0.7 seems to have done the trick. Only time will tell though.

Now I have to figure out how to get my update manager to skip over the old version of rsync and not update.
