Rsync on AIX.

I've just installed "rsync version 2.5.6  protocol version 26" on AIX 4.3 and I am having a strange problem when trying to run rsync in --daemon mode.

Here is the command I'm trying to run:

/usr/local/bin/rsync --daemon --config=/usr/local/etc/rsyncd.conf

Here is the config file:

uid = nobody
gid = nobody
log file = /var/adm/rsyncd.log
lock file = /var/adm/
use chroot = yes
syslog facility = local5
path = /var/path/changed/here
max connections = 5
read only = true
transfer logging = true

The daemon doesn't respond to stdout, and it doesn't run. Here's what the log file: /var/adm/rsyncd.log says...

2004/02/05 18:52:37 [38372] rsyncd version 2.5.6 starting, listening on port 873
2004/02/05 18:52:37 [38372] rsync: getaddrinfo: bind address : Host not found
2004/02/05 18:52:37 [38372] rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at socket.c(386)

I have not modified any of the logged output. It looks a little strange at the "getaddrinfo: bind address" area.

Can anyone here offer assistance with this problem?
