using sol8 sparc platform with recommended patch set from sun.
dloaded/installed rsync and popt(prerequsite) from (bin for
sol8 sparc)
		# pkgadd -d ./popt-1.7-sol8-sparc-local all  
		# pkgadd -d ./rsync-2.5.6-sol8-sparc-local all

Problem : 
can rsync locally but cannot rsync over network ; can rcp over network

		can rsync  locally :
		oracle at sys2:/apps/oracle/dba> touch test
		oracle at sys2:/apps/oracle/dba> rcp test test2
		oracle at sys2:/apps/oracle/dba> rsync test test3
		oracle at sys2:/apps/oracle/dba> ls
				test     test2    test3 

		cannot rsync over network :
oracle at sys1:/oracle> rcp nenxdba2:/apps/oracle/dba/test .		<==
this works 
		oracle at sys1:/oracle> rsync nenxdba2:/apps/oracle/dba/test .
				ksh: rsync:  not found
				rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0
bytes read so far)
				rsync error: error in rsync protocol data
stream (code 12) at io.c(165)
			==> this error happens for both normal user and root

Trying from/to sys1/sys2 ; does not work either way.
downloading source and compiling creates another set of errors/problems !

Any idea ?
