I'm setting up a box running Ubuntu 8.10 to rsync my FreeBSD server(s). I want to pull data down to the Ubuntu box, then send it all upstream to an offsite data center. But first I have to get rsync to work.
rsync: writefd_unbuffered failed to write 461 bytes [sender]: Broken pipe (32)
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (1258 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error allocating core memory buffers (code 22) at io.c(600) [sender=3.0.5]
And after that error, it won't run anymore - the error keeps happening. If it were just running out of memory, a restart ought to fix it, but doesn't. The box should be adequate - 2.4 GHz dual P4 with 1 GB ram.
Also: I know there must be a better way to connect to the source, but how? I've been mounting the server via SFTP in the GUI (hence the .gvfs path) which is probably not the fastest way. But ssh thru the shell doesn't seem to work.
rsync daemon is NOT running on the source FreeBSD server.
I'll send whatever add'l info people would like to see - thanks in advance!
I don't think that will work very well, tell me, have you an ssh server running on the remote machine, and the keys setup correctly for remote login?
Yes, I can ssh into the remote machine from the command line. And the rsync error doesn't happen until after it asks me for the password (but I'm not getting a password error). I haven't set up keys yet for unattended login in rsync.

This will only work if you have SSH keys setup between your machine you are sitting at, and the machine with IP 192.168.1.4! You won't have these problems when you setup keys between your machines for unattended rsync. check out the link I sent you earlier!
