This error means that no articles are fed from your
Primary to the Replacement server. Actually a
connection is established but the Replacement server
receives EOF once it tries to receive articles.

You have to check the newsfeeds configuration file on
the Primary side and and/or incoming.conf on the
replacment side.

Maybe no newsgroups are defined from which articles
to be retrieved (in the Primary server's newsfeed
file).

Look carefully at both files :)
