Post Native Window version of rsync 
Hi,

Based on the source from Kolosy (http://www.kolosy.com/wordpress/?p=8 ), we have continued the journey and successully ported Rsync to C# (protocol 28 ). So far, the program has the following features:
1. Lots of features just like Rsync, supporting protocol up to 28.
2. No need for cygwin. However, it's required .NET framework version 3.5
3. Utilise Volume Shadow Copy Service (aka VSS, on XP machines only) so that now it will do the work on shadow copy (configurable parameter on config file) and copy even opened files, exchange files, SQL files, etc.
4. Zlib compression supported
5. Running as a windows service (daemon), working fine with BackupPC and rsync on unix platform.
6. Can produce rdiff-backup alike signature/delta file.
7. Unicode filename supported.
8. Ultilise nearly maximum network bandwidth. During testing, we are getting around 11-12MB/s on 100Mbs network.
9. Many mores...

Many thanks to Kolosy!

Please let us know if anyone interested in having a test on this program.

Thanks.

This is excellent news!

I for one would be very interested in testing the software. Is the
latest version available in Kolosy's repository?

I'm very interested in trying this, sounds brilliant!The author doesn't sound too optimistic though, but I'll try it none the less!
Thanks for the link!

I'd like to take a look at this. Is this going to be released under the
GPL as RSYNC is?

Volume Shadow Copy is a *very* nice feature that I would love to have.

Cool,

Let us prepare an installation package as it also comes with a GUI allowing you to configure files to be excluded/included from backup.

Also, I forgot to mention, the program also has built in dd's (Disk Duplicate, another well-known utility from UNIX) functionalities, allowing you to backup MBR (Master Boot Record) too!

By the way VSS also works on Vista and 2003 server.

Currently we are working on Continuous Data Protection (CDP). Hopefully this will be released soon...

The biggest question in my mind is whether this will be an open source
application or commercial ?


Either way, it sounds like the perfect complement to backuppc though.

One feature that might be quite helpful is to allow a remote server to
specify what is backed up instead of the local application... (actually,
I thought this was the way rsyncd worked anyway?).

Regards,
Adam

It's still being discussed whether it's going to be open source or commercial. Right now, looks like it's going to be free to download type...

The ability for remote server to specify what is backed up is still there, as well as local application can also specify its own OS-specific exclusion like pagefile, Internet Temporary Folder, etc.

If you used the rsync source code to create the rsync .NET version, I
think that you may be legally required to keep the software licensed
under the GPL if you distribute it.

If you only used the rsync algorithms and interfaces to create the
port, then you should be able to license the software any way you
wish.

But IANAL.

this is true. rsync is GPL so this MUST be GPL because the GPL is viral.

We don't use rsync source code, but just the algorithms and interface to create the port (with some helps based on Kolosy's version). That's why it's still being discussed whether it should be open source or commercial...

the rync algorythm is actually part of the GPL code released by Andrew Tridgell.

Like I said, GPL is viral. Tridgell released this algorythm as a part of rsync undel GPL so use of the exact algorythm requires a GPL license.

You may reverse engineer the functionality but you cannot use the algoryth, just a work-alike.

If you have even looked at the code for rsync, you will likely be infringing on the GPL if you license this anything but GPL.

I am not some GPL nazi, I am just making this point.

You might run into some other problems if using GPL code in a C# environment if you are using shared libraries that are not GPL.

Hmm, I see...

Thanks very much for pointing that out.

BTW, what do you mean by "You might run into some other problems if using GPL code in a C# environment if you are using shared libraries that are not GPL"?

Thanks.
