Setup and configure rsync on RHEL 5.3

When running rsync between 2 RHEL 5.3 boxes my user is getting:

connection refused rsync: connection unexpedctedly closed (0 bytes read so far) rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream

I can ssh between the servers with no problem.
I can scp between the servers with no problem.
i can run the following rsync cmmd between the svrs with no problem:
rsync -v -e ssh mrjoe@svr1:~/sometestfile.txt .

BUT, when I try to run the following rsync cmmd - i get the connection refused error:
rsync -av mrjoe@svr1:~/sometestfile.txt .

What am I missing in setting up/configuring rsync?

Any help much appreciated.
