rdist - A remote host refused an attempted connect operation.
Posted on 2004-08-19
I need to rdist a file from serverA to serverB. When I do a rdist from serverA, it's giving me a "A remote host refused an attempted connect operation.". I have added the serverA's ssh key in serverB and I can ssh without password. But i don't think this is the problem.
1) Do I need to add serverA's ip/hostname into serverB's hosts.allow?
2) What else do I need to check?
3) What causes this refusal from the remote host?
