As the title says:

Using rsyncd as transport, I try to backup the complete C: drive of my
Windows 2000 pc

Share define in config.pl:

$Conf{RsyncShareName} = ['down', 'cDrive'];

defines in rsyncd.conf on the PC:

[cDrive]
   path = c:
   comment = Entire Drive
   auth users = UUU
   secrets file = d:/rsyncd.secrets
   # hosts allow = 172.16.0.17
   strict modes = false
   read only = true
   list = true


[down]
   path = e:/down
   comment = Download dir
   auth users = UUU
   secrets file = d:/rsyncd.secrets
   # hosts allow = 172.16.0.17
   strict modes = false
   read only = true
   list = true


error messages in rsyncd.log:

any hints? I don't  know if it matters, but I also use/have installed cygwin.
