Re: cygwin and rsync
I am at home today and cannot perform all of these, but on the Linux ->
Windows, I was able to issue the rsync on [LOCAL/Linux] and then attach
to the rsync process on [REMOTE/Windows] using gdb with the resulting
$ gdb rsync 3032

This seems like a foreign language to me but maybe this screams
something to someone?
My chief purpose for all of this is to allow automatic backups onto a
Linux file server from various systems (initiating on the Linux box),
including Windows PCs. This has been a project for some time, but after
many different Runs-Linux-on-Windows distributions, I have met with
little success. But, I will press on with hope. I've certainly learned
a lot---as a non-IT person that is.
