You're missing the local target (or source, depending on what you were
trying to do).

Is there actually a rsync daemon running in 192.168.100.25 ?
"Connection refused" generally means that there is no process listening
to the TCP port in question (or it's firewalled).
What does "telnet 192.168.100.25 873" give? Also a "connection refused"?
Then it's not an rsync problem per se.
