I want to download all of the cygwin files for a computer that is not connected to the Internet. I know I can download all of the cygwin files with rsync, but I'm not quite sure of the right incantation. Can you help me?

I really am just guessing, but I suspect it might look something like this.

rsync --archive --verbose --delete cygwin.com::cygwin-ftp/ /your/local/path/

See: http://sourceware.org/cygwin-apps/package-server.html
