Hello all,

I am having a problem with rsync. I want to backup data from one machine to another remote machine. I have Freebsd4.7 on source and FreeBSD4.9 on destination machines. rsync is installed on both the machines. I gave the following command at the source machine.

rsync -avvznrbe rsh /sourcepath 

( is the destination ip address)

Below is the error i get

opening connection using rsh rsync --server -vvbnlogDtprz . /destinationpath operation timed out
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(189)

I am using dry run for testing purpose. I can "rsh" from source to destination machine but i do not understand why rsync is not working. Any direction would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance.
