I have been receiving this error right from start. I can ping both the
systems from one another.

I think this is a bug reported here:

here is the ietd.conf

# Example iscsi target configuration
# Everything until the first target definition belongs
# to the global configuration.
# Right now this is only the user configuration used
# during discovery sessions. "IncomingUser" specifies credentials the
# initiator has to provide - several of these are supported. If mutual
# CHAP shall be employed, "OutgoingUser" specifies the user/pass
# combination the target will provide - only one is supported.
# Leave them alone (keep them commented out) if you don't want to use
# authentication for discovery sessions.

#iSNSAccessControl No

#IncomingUser joe secret
#OutgoingUser jack 12charsecret

# Targets definitions start with "Target" and the target name.
# The target name must be a globally unique name, the iSCSI
# standard defines the "iSCSI Qualified Name" as follows:
# iqn.yyyy-mm.<reversed domain name>[:identifier]
# "yyyy-mm" is the date at which the domain is valid and the identifier
# is freely selectable. For further details please check the iSCSI spec.

#Target iqn.2001-04.com.example:storage.disk2.sys1.xyz
        # Users, who can access this target. The same rules as for discovery
        # users apply here.
        # Leave them alone if you don't want to use authentication.
        #IncomingUser joe secret
        #OutgoingUser jim 12charpasswd
        # Logical Unit definition
        # You must define one logical unit at least.
        # Block devices, regular files, LVM, and RAID can be offered
        # to the initiators as a block device.
