Re: Rsync problem..

I know nothing, but a quick Google search for
the error message suggests looking at the
server log file ("/var/log/rsyncd.log"?),
and the server configuration file
("/etc/rsyncd.conf"?)

What did your Web search find?

Someone who did know something might wonder
which rsync versions are in use here (on each
system):

rsync --version

Re: Rsync problem..

Are you using passwordless login? Before you try the rsync, try to ssh from this server to the Solaris machine.

I would say, you correct the ssh-keys and passwordless login first.
