Ignore this....I've now got something roughly going.

I was quite confused between using rsync with rsh/ssh and using the 
daemon mode, the difference being the client side with an extra :

rsync -avz ftpsync at /home/proftp/

Also i was having problems as my rsync.conf had [ftp file] as I thought the 
stuff in the brackets was a nominal name rather than an actual module name

Oh and theres a useful guide at
