    You need to make sure the remote system is running the rsync server daemon. How to install/enable that depends on the system you're running. Many distros don't have the rsync server enabled by default.

    As far as I can see, that is likely your problem. However, make sure you can ping the system too - it could be basic networking to/from that system isn't working.

    Hi.

    If following DThors' advice does not work, there may be another possibility. I vaguely recall using rsync's ability to ssh into a box (where I had a login, but not control), run the rsync command on that box, and have it communicate back to the originating box. Sorry, I don't recall the details, but I seem to remember that the man page provides the procedure ... cheers, drl

    Yup, you're probably thinking of this:

    Code:
    rsync -av --rsh=ssh host::module /dest
    which wouldn't need the daemon to be running. That's another thing I forgot to ask - please indicate what you've typed in so the type of connection you're trying to run can be established. First, though, go through the basics - ensure network communication is there(ping), try ssh, then go on from there.
