I installed rsync and one the web programmers configured it to run with
Amazon based content servers. He may have contacted IBM for help with
configuration. I have looked for the config files to see if there is any
hint there for you, but have as yet been unable to locate them. If I
remember that long, I will try to as when I see the programmer next, but
that is not until Friday.

As I mentioned to Jack, the only config files I am using are rsyncd.conf
and rsyncd.scrt in /etc. For those, I followed the example in the MC Press
article. His setup is similar to examples I've seen from others running on
other platforms. Any tips?

We use it all the time to sync between our servers and external content
servers. We are at 7.1 of i5/OS. I too think you have a config issue.

Has anyone had success getting the rsync daemon to work in 7.1? I have
installed version 3.1.0-1 from Michael Perzl's website, along with popt
1.16-1 (dependency). I would like to configure it to run as a daemon to
synchronize files for our website from a development machine to the IFS.
The rsync executable runs fine to sync files from one directory to
in the IFS (for example), but it fails when started as a daemon/server.
When I check, nothing is running on the default port 873.

rsync --daemon --log-file=/tmp/rsync.log
