rsync is a program for sychronizing files over the network. The rsync server is disabled (off) by default in Red Hat Linux.
1. To check if the rsync server has been enabled (on), run the following command:
# /sbin/chkconfig --list rsync
2. If the rsync server has been enabled but is not required, it can be disabled by running the following command as root:
# /sbin/chkconfig rsync off
