dir list behavior differences?

add a /, and it will show the contents.
add -r, and it will show all the contents, recursively.

Incidentally:  I've deleted and reinstalled notes, in the hopes that the 
user preference for internet mail (TEXT ONLY, instead of HTML) has been 
honored.  I set that as soon as i started, but obviously, our gateways 
were either messing with the mail, or this stupid new R5 client does 
things on its own.

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?
