      I need help in installing and configuring rsync in AIX 5.3, i have tested installing the popt and rsync 2.6.2 in a test test box.

steps I have done on both the systems...
    Installed the popt and rsync. (By default it was installed in /usr/bin/rsync)
   edited /etc/services with line "rsync           873/tcp"
   edited /etc/inetd.conf with the line 
           "rsync  stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/bin/rsync    rsyncd –daemon"
   refreshed the inetd.conf
   ran netstat -an  and the port is opened for communication

After this i am not able to see the rsyncd.conf and rsyncd.secrets in the /etc directory, please guide me to configure the directory and the files to be synchronized.

Thanks in advance...
