    rsync failure

    I attempted an rsync as follows:

      /usr/bin/rsync -avz --rsh='ssh -p1022' --delete $REMOTEHOST:$REMOTEHOMEDIR/ $LOCALHOMEDIR   2>&1  >> $LOGFILE
    I get the following error:

      ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host
    rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [receiver]
    rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(459) [receiver=2.6.8]
    hostname:/home/ut1khn/bin #
    I am currently investigating with Network to find out if I have a firewall issue. Hypothetically, if I do not have a firewall issue, is it true that in order for this to work I should have entries in either rhosts or host.equiv ? to make this work?

    Replying to my own thread: I did indeed have a firewall issue. FYI, I do not have entries in either rhosts or host.equiv and rsync is now working fine. Sorry to have bothered you.
