This is a newbie question. I've looked through the archives and  
haven't found an answer to this.

I set up rsync in inetd.conf to respond on request. When I give a  
remote request to the machine, I get the following error:

paladin:~ tamara$ rsync -avr /Volumes/Music/Pictures/ rsync:// 
tamara at server/Pictures/
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at / 
SourceCache/rsync/rsync-35.2/rsync/io.c(452) [sender=2.6.9]
paladin:~ tamara$

paladin, the local machine is a macbook running os x 10.5.4 and server  
is Dell running ubuntu server 8.04.

there is no rsyncd.conf file.
