Need more information.  There are many circumstances that will give that 
message, most of them user errors.  Show the exact commandline used.

I use FreeBSD RELENG_4 


rsync  version 2.5.4  protocol version 26
Copyright (C) 1996-2002 by Andrew Tridgell and others
Capabilities: 64-bit files, socketpairs, hard links, symlinks, batchfiles, 
              32-bit system inums, 64-bit internal inums

and when I try to transfer file I get 

rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (5994 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(151)

Could anyone tell me why and how to fix this ?
