I am needing to have a company transfer website file from a linux server to a windows server. They have been trying to upload the files to my Windows machine which is running Bitvise as the SSH server and Backup Assist, an rsync, platform. They can seem to get their system to connect.. Here is the message they sent me regarding the error they're getting.  

+ rsync -avzh --progress /Server-backups
'rsync' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(226) [sender=3.1.0]
Help would be appreciated!

Can they try specifying the full path to rsync, e.g.
c:\program files\program folder\rsync -avzh --progress /Server-backups

Though NVIT gave a decent answer, I corrected the issue by setting the path in Windows. This made it so they did not have specify the path.
