RSYNC and SSH

I have started to use RSYNC again to backup servers.  One thing that has been a problem with my initial synchronization of data is the dreaded error,

Connection reset by peer


I believe that I have resolved this time out error by adding the following changes to the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file on the server that is making the connection to a remote host.

ClientAliveInterval 300

TCPKeepAlive=yes


The ClientAliveInterval will to send data across the connection every five minutes.



I know that this is not a good method to use for very long.  I will change this to use this method after my initial server copy is complete.
