RE: rsync protocol error

 Use e.g. Ethereal (with the pcap library) and catch the TCP transfers for
both the successful direction of the copy, and then for the unsuccessful.
Use SMALL file(s). Start two copies of ethereal and compare.
( - free software)

This requires a BASIC understanding of the TCP packet structure from you. I
would say that you can get very far _without_ TCP expertise.
