Windows OpenSSH Conflicts with cwRsync
Today, I hit a strange problem attempting to rsync from a local Windows tablet to a remote Linux server. I got the following error:
C:\Users\LocalUser\Desktop>rsync -auv RemoteUser@RemoteServer:TestFile* .
The cwRsync has been working fine with the remote server on my other Windows computers. I had just freshly re-installed Windows 10 Home on this tablet. So there must have been some conflict. After fishing around a bit, I decided to check the path for ssh:
Ah ha! Windows 10 Home attempted to take over ssh. By the way, you can download Which.bat for Windows.
One way to fix this problem is to insert the cwRsync path before the OpenSSH path in the System variables (see screen shot below). To get there on Windows 10, go to "Settings" -> "About" -> "Advanced system settings" -> "Environment Variables..."
After swapping the path order, cwRsync started working again.
