I am using dry run for testing purpose. I can "rsh" from source to destination machine

I'm not sure, the only time I've seen that type of error is when I've had connection
problems (i.e., my packet filter was blocking rsync).

You might do better using rsync's native communication protocol (i.e., running rsyncd
on one machine and connecting from the other).
