When debugging, it's usually better to start at a high level rather than jumping
into the guts of things, unless you could tell us all the high- and middle-level
stuff you've tried already. See http://cygwin.com/problems.html for info on
what kind of info you should supply to get you good help. Starting with
'cygcheck -svr' output **as an attachment** on your next email. If your rsync
is using ssh (I don't know if that's assumed or not) then does ssh work between
the machines you're rsync'ing between?

'netstat -ano' will add a column to that output showing the Windows pid of the
process associated with each connection. Use that and Cygwin's 'ps -a' to
figure out which Cygwin process is involved, if any.
I realize this is all pretty generic help. If you can supply more details
perhaps somebody can help better.
