I've just had an odd problem. I have a local gentoo rsyncd setup, which usually works fine. However, my secondary computer was not able to complete the rsync. The connection was available, as the server had the following error messages:

rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (14
bytes received so far) [receiver]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data
stream (code 12) at io.c(600) [receiver=3.0.6]

I noticed that my cable modem was turned off (the "standby" button) was pushed, so I reactivated it out of desperation, and then everything worked. The rsync IS still going through my local server.

Although I've solved the problem, I am really curious as to why I would need the WAN connection in order for a local rsync to work! Can anyone enlighten me?
