Generations Linux depot is out-of-date… granted it has been several months since I checked. What myself and ibiblio have or had is an rsync . On my end only ibiblio and another site can rsync with me for Generations Linux depot. The rsync --daemon is running on my end. The rsync logging file (/var/log/rsync) shows no attemps/activity coming from ibiblio.

Please Advice. Thank you.


The cronjob is still running nightly, but ( + three ipv6 addresses with Global Scope, heaven help me) is unable to contact

@jobbot1:~/scripts} rsync -4v
^Crsync error: received SIGINT, SIGTERM, or SIGHUP (code 20) at rsync.c(638) [Receiver=3.1.2]
@jobbot1:~/scripts} rsync -6v
rsync: failed to connect to (2610:28:3091:3001:ffff:0:4c58:7223): No route to host (113)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(125) [Receiver=3.1.2]


and, if you need to allow our client ipv6, I am told it is


As a test, could we force jobbot1’s rsync to only do IPv4? The IPv6 range will have to change later this year anyway.

Here is a snippet from /var/log/rsync showing last successful rsync:
2020/07/04 21:10:06 [10093] connect from (
2020/07/05 04:10:07 [10093] rsync on generations/ from (

Since 2020/08/07 on my end rsync was updated to version 3.2.3 (previously 3.1.1)
