dir list behavior differences?

I have set up an anonymous rsync server
that seems to work as expected.  However
when I try to access the server from several
other unix boxes using rsync with a command 
like this;

rsync netlib3.cs.utk.edu::netlib

I get the motd and then a line that states

client: nothing to do

Now I would expect this to give me a directory
listing.  I do get the directory listing as
expected when doing the command from the local
box.  I have tried other servers listed here;


and I get the same results, when using some of my
clients I just get the motd and the client: nothing
to do error.

Is this an issue with backwards compatibility between
new server and older client communications?
Is there a way to get the listings as expected for
all clients?
