Connection refused

Dear sir,

Having read all the descriptions of how easy it was to use rsync, I tried it
for the replication of two servers.
	rsync /tmp/repl 

I got the following error message (after a period which seemed to be a
time-out): Connection refused
	rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes read so far)
	rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at

When I try rsh, I get connected and I'm able to work on the remote

I'm using the latest version of rsync on SuSE 7.2 (the version that came
with SuSE also didn't work) 

What am I doing wrong?
