If you keep on trying timeout, try choosing another RSYNC server.
The mirror list (http://www.centos.org/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=13) shows which server can be rsync'ed as well.

Find a rsync server which is near you can save a significant time of initial sync.



Dear all,

I have been following the HowTo instructions for Mirroring, located at 

My question is:
How long does it take to do the initial rsync?

I have ran the command
rsync -aqzH --delete msync.centos.org::CentOS .

twice and it seems to have timed out, obtaining more data at each run.

I then have ran the same command but with --no-blocking-io in order to 
prevent it from timing out. Its been running for well over 16 hrs.

Would anyone know what I have done wrong?

Thanks in advance,
