Hi Everybody,
I m running RedHat 9 Linux and I have the rsync-2.5.5-4 package.
When I m trying to the following:
[root at myhost_name root]# /usr/bin/rsync -va

I got the following error:
Couldn't get address for your host (
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(150)
Note: rsync is working fine with the -e ssh option.
Also the rsh and rlogin works fine in my host.
Any Advice will be very helpful. 
Best Regards.
