Rsync over SSH and ssh into machine not working with ZoneAlarm Security Suite


Oh no! Not another ZoneAlarm question! Sorry.

I'm having the same problem as Zarko mentioned in

rsync hangs as soon as networking is involved. So for instance,

$ rsync -v -v -v -v test1
cmd= machine=localhost user=
cmd=ssh localhost rsync --server -vvvv .
opening connection using ssh localhost rsync --server -vvvv .

Similarly, I can't get ssh into my machine to work (out does work):

$ ssh -v -v localhost
OpenSSH_4.3p2, OpenSSL 0.9.8a 11 Oct 2005
debug1: Reading configuration data /etc/ssh_config
debug1: Applying options for *
debug2: ssh_connect: needpriv 0
debug1: Connecting to localhost [] port 22.
debug2: fd 3 setting O_NONBLOCK
debug1: fd 3 clearing O_NONBLOCK
debug1: Connection established.
debug1: identity file /home/kris/.ssh/identity type -1
debug1: identity file /home/kris/.ssh/id_rsa type -1
debug1: identity file /home/kris/.ssh/id_dsa type -1

This all worked till this morning when I had McAfee Internet Security, but
then I unisntalled that one and installed the (trial) ZoneAlarm Security
Suite (6.1.744.000).

I did put relevant stuff in my 'trusted zone'. In fact, it even doesn't work
anymore when I set ZoneAlarm's firewall to 'low' (meaning it's off).
I did reinstall some things from cygwin (the cygwin dll, openssh, rsync,
opensll), but after trusting cygrunsrv, sshd, ssh and rsync again, it still
doesn't work.

I've found various hints on the web on sshd, but most seem not relevant. For

- people complain about "Object" warnings of zonealarm when ssh-ing into the
machine. That's not what I see, but I set "UsePrivilegeSeparation no"
anyway. Doesn't help though.

- you have to force the startup order of the sshd service after the
zonealarm services (see I
did that and it doesn't help. My ssh problem occurs even when starting the
sshd daemon by hand anyway. 

- I've reinstalled cygwin dll, openssh, openssl, rsync (as Christopher
Faylor possibly suggested in I then had to 'trust'
ssh, sshd, rsync again, but all to no avail.

My cygwin is up-to-date. I'm running XP home sp2. Output of cygcheck is

Any suggestions?

Many thanks!
