That would be the problem. An rsync daemon needs a configuration file;
it will look for the file at /etc/rsyncd.conf unless you specify a
different path with a --config option in the command inetd is running.
In general, you should check the server's syslog (/var/log/messages) or
any "log file" you specified in rsyncd.conf for error messages related
to the daemon. Most likely, there is a message in the syslog now
telling you that the daemon failed to open /etc/rsyncd.conf .
