Connection error when trying to rsync NT and Win 2000 boxes

I have installed rsync on my PC (NT) and a windows 2000 server. It appears
the 2 boxes are unable to talk. 

I get following errors: 

C:\Program Files\rsync>rsync.exe -vv test\*\test
opening connection using rsh rsync --server -vv . "C:\test"
> refused
rsh.exe: can't establish connection
rsync: read error: Connection reset by peer
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at

In addition when I perform 

telnet 873 ( It says connection refused) 

However, I am able to perform rsync operations on the same box. 

Any help will be highly appreciated. 

Thank You,
