Basic doubts

Hi all,
    I am very new to the rsync world (as well as the linux world) and have 
some really basic doubts. Please bear with me.
    I installed RH 9 on two systems in the same network and Rsync 2.5.5 was 
automatically installed with it. When I executed the command “rsync –avz 
test.txt /backupdir/ ”, it backed up the file test.txt into 
backupdir/test.txt. But when I tried the command “rsync –avz test.txt 
system2::home/” , it gave me the following:
             “system2 connection refused.
              Rsync: connection unexpectedly closed.
              Rsync error: error in protocol data stream(code 12) at 
System2 has a fully qualified domain name.
Could anyone please tell me if I have to start the Rsync server and if yes, 
how to do it.
Thank you,
