Hi all,

I have this in the log:

xxx.ucc.usyd.edu.au: Connection refused
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(151)

This is my command:

/usr/bin/nice -n +19 /usr/local/bin/rsync -n --verbose --archive --progress --stats --compress
                     --rsh=/usr/local/bin/ssh \
                     --owner --group -r --times --perms --links --delete \
                     -D --hard-links --exclude "*bak" --exclude "*~" \
                     /opt/mydir xxx:/opt

There is no problem with ssh, which was tested.
