I am running the following command to start the rsync server manually
rsync --daemon
 Then I am getting the following error
2004/12/20 22:41:40 [3396] rsyncd version 2.5.7 starting, listening on
port 873
2004/12/20 22:41:40 [3396] rsync: open inbound socket on port 873 failed:
s already in use
2004/12/20 22:41:40 [3396] rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at
Can anybody help me.
