Hi all,

I've installed rsync-2.5.6 on a sun box (solaris 8). When I run rsync using the 

rsync -a ssh /opt/local/pkgs/httpd/htdocs/ root at remotemachine:/mnt/

I get the error

rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(165)

What could be the reason? Any help would be appreciated.
