thank You for Your time; sorry I didn't included my rsyncd.conf. As I
said, on two other machines with EXACTLY the same config file and EXACTLY
the same passwd entries for nobody and nogroup = same ID's, it works
perfectly. EXECTLY the same permissions on target directory alos ofcourse.
This is my /etc/rsyncd.conf:
--- CUT HERE ---
motd file = /etc/issue.net
max connections = 0
syslog facility = local3
comment = Backup area
path = /_silos
read only = no
list = no
uid = nobody
gid = nogroup
hosts allow = XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
