rsync -avvznrbe rsh /sourcepath 184.108.40.206:/destinationpath
(220.127.116.11 is the destination ip address)
Below is the error i get
opening connection using rsh 18.104.22.168 rsync --server -vvbnlogDtprz . /destinationpath 22.214.171.124: operation timed out rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes read so far) rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(189)
I am using dry run for testing purpose. I can "rsh" from source to destination machine
I'm not sure, the only time I've seen that type of error is when I've had connection problems (i.e., my packet filter was blocking rsync).
You might do better using rsync's native communication protocol (i.e., running rsyncd on one machine and connecting from the other).
