Same results as before. The "lsof" and "netstat" commands indicated that the process was running & listening. When I telnet to each server using the appropriate port, it worked as expected.

It seems like running in xinetd mode causes the daemon to not know where it's configuration file is. Like it can't find the appropriate key, so the SSL handshake fails.

The configuration file is below (scrubbed):

   # Csync2 Configuration File
   # ---------------------------------
   # Please read the documentation:
   # /usr/share/doc/csync2-*/README.quickstart
   # /usr/share/doc/csync2-*/paper.pdf
   # csync2(1) man page
   group ftpsync

            # comments that say "(see x.y.z)" refer to chapter x,
   section y,
            #   subsection z in the documentation (paper.pdf).


            key /etc/csync2/csync2.key;

            include %MNT%/ftp/;
            exclude _*.tgz;
            auto none;              # automatic conflict resolution
   (see 3.4.6)
            backup-directory %MNT%/csync2-backup;
            backup-generations 3;
   prefix MNT
            on      /sync;
            on *:                           /data01;

First, are you sure that csync2 daemon listening on each node? You can use one of these commands: lsof -ni TCP:30865 , netstat -ntupa|grep LIST|grep :30865
If thats OK, check firewall settings on each node (iptables-save)
From master node (when you want run csync2 -xv) you can connect to remote csync2 daemons (on each node) with these command: telnet 30865 If you can connect to remote nodes, next you must check your configuration on each nodes (please show your /etc/csync2/csync2.cfg)
csync2 -iiivvv # this is debug mode on each node, you can run these command instead of xinetd daemon, next you can see debug messages on your console and use it for debug csync2 -xvvv # you must run this command on your master node, you can see debug messages to your console
Try this solutions, if it does not work, write here

I can't get Csync2 to work when configured through an xinetd script. I've added the file, /etc/xinetd.d/csync, with the following contents:

    # default: off
    # description: csync2
    service csync2
            disable = no
            flags           = REUSE
            socket_type     = stream
            wait            = no
            user            = root
            group           = root
            env             = CSYNC2_SYSTEM_DIR=/etc/csync2
            server          = /usr/sbin/csync2
            server_args     = -itv
            port            = 30865
            type            = UNLISTED
            log_type        = FILE /var/log/csync2.log
            log_on_success  = HOST PID
            log_on_failure  = HOST

In this configuration, running "csync2 -xv" shows that it cannot connect to any of the other nodes; running it manually (csync2 -iitv) works. I've added the appropriate entry into "/etc/services", along with values in "/etc/hosts.allow".

Can someone please point me in the right direction?
