Wink rsync issue


Hi all,
I am very new to Linux.I need to setup a file server(CENTOS) with all the files in it to be backed up to another machine.I downloaded the rsync rpm and installed ..I am sure rsync listens to the port number 873.
When i scanned my system1 using n
map -v -p 873 fileserver
It displayed me the following message

Starting Nmap 4.11 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2008-12-29 18:47 IST
DNS resolution of 1 IPs took 0.26s.
Initiating SYN Stealth Scan against hit-nxdomain.opendns.com (208.67.216.132) [1 port] at 18:47
The SYN Stealth Scan took 2.53s to scan 1 total ports.
Host hit-nxdomain.opendns.com (208.67.216.132) appears to be up ... good.
Interesting ports on hit-nxdomain.opendns.com (208.67.216.132):
PORT STATE SERVICE
873/tcp filtered rsync

Nmap finished: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 4.396 seconds
Raw packets sent: 4 (156B) | Rcvd: 1 (46B)



I really don't knw what is the meaning of 'filtered' specified Under 'State' category.Does it mean that rsync is stopped temporarily.
I saw in some books that rsync daemon is started using rsync --daemon command.I typed it, its execution was fine.
But when i checked using chkconfig --list | grep rsync
It shows me
rsync: off
Again i turned it on using
chkconfig rsync on

when again i checked using chkconfig --list | grep rsync
It shows me
rsync: on


But i am not sure whether rsync is running or it.Will after installing rsync package rync.conf file will be created under /etc or sholud we have to create ?
Please help me.

Filtered usually means (to me) that the firewall is on. When you installed your Cent OS machine, do you remember turning on the firewall in the initial setup? If you did, you will need to open up 873. You should see this in System->Administration->Security Level and Firewall.

If you don't see rsync in the Trusted services section, you will need to manually add it to the other ports section. Hope that fixes you up.
