Talking rsync: failed to connect to Connection refused (111)

Hi, All

After install two Fedora core 10 Server

and install newest rsync 3.0.6 to

and try to backup (b) server to (a) server

/usr/local/bin/rsync -rvlHpogDtS --password-file=/etc/rsync.secrets

/a/data root@


rsync: failed to connect to Connection refused (111)

rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(124)

I'm sure /etc/rsync.conf and /etc/rsync.secrets is correct

and open tcp port 873 by iptables already...

Does some one can give me good advice.

Thanks & Regards.....Steve
