[SOLVED] Can't make replication service work

Hi. I'm trying to replicate one Alfresco Community 4.0d installation from one site to another, but I'm having problems configuring it (and finding documentation).
Both sites have only the default content, except the source node which contains a test site too (it should be replicated on the other).

I did the following:

- Added "replication.enabled=true" in (both alfresco instances)

- Defined a "primaryStore" pointing to /app/alfresco-4.0.d/alf_data/contentstore in replicating-content-services-context.xml (source node only)

- Added share url in the source alfresco with those contents in share-config-custom.xml: (source node only)
    <config evaluator="string-compare" condition="Replication">
        <share-url repositoryId="remote_alfresco_ID_obtained_from_CMIS_info">http://remote_target_alfresco/share/</share-url>

- Created new folder under Repository / Data Dictionary / Transfers / Transfer Targets / Default group, pointing to the target alfresco (source node only)

- Created a new replicating job In Admin Tools / Replication Jobs, targeting the previous folder (source node only)

When I click on 'Run Job', I got this exception on the target node:

I couldn't find any doc. or example about configuring it from the start.
Could anybody help?
