I am trying to use a standard
ssh between a local MacBook Pro and a remote Linux based machine (WD MyCloud). There is no problem initializing it, but after syncing for a while I always get the following error message:
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (6969766427 bytes received so far) [receiver] rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at /SourceCache/rsync/rsync-45/rsync/io.c(453) [receiver=2.6.9] rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (44480 bytes received so far) [generator] rsync error: unexplained error (code 255) at /SourceCache/rsync/rsync-45/rsync/io.c(453) [generator=2.6.9]
Sometimes it manages to sync several gig of data, sometimes less than that, but I have yet failed to finish the sync.
I am using a standard
rsync -avz -e ssh remoteuser@remotehost:/remote/dir /this/dir/
