Help please
I am trying to use rsync from a windows to a solaris machine and I
have configured it according the the sun bigadmin docs. but I still
get errors

bash-2.05$ cat /etc/services | grep rsync
rsync 873/tcp # rsync
bash-2.05$ cat /etc/inetd.conf | grep rsync
rsync stream tcp nowait root /opt/sfw/bin rsyncd --daemon

bash-2.05$ netstat -a | grep rsync
*.rsync *.* 0 0 49152 0

# this is the rsyncd.conf file
motd file = /etc/rsyncd.motd
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log
pid file = /var/run/
lock file = /var/run/rsync.lock
path = /source
comment = My Very Own Rsync Server
uid = nobody
gid = nobody
read only = no
list = yes
auth users = myaccount
secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.scrt

this is the error I get from windows:

D:\rsync>rsync -auvzbP ssh.exe humsun:/var/tmp
Local: Bad packet length 1349676916.
rsync: read error: Connection reset by peer
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at

to linux, I have no problem:
D:\rsync>rsync -auvzbP ssh.exe linux4:/var/tmp
myaccount@linux4's password:
rsync: building file list...
