syntax for push to remote rsync server

	I have set up two servers as rsync servers with ssh, they sync
agianst each other. I can pull data down from either remote node when logged
into one of them, using a module defined on both servers. However I don't
seem to be able to push from the localhost to the remote rsync server. I
think I'm using the incorrect syntax. If someone could highlight where I'm
going wrong it would be great.

I can pull down from remote host beqoas2 to localhost beqoas1 using the
rsync -Cvaupogzb --suffix=-`date '+%H:%M-%d-%m-%y'`  -e ssh beqoas2::test

test is the module name

I can push from localhost beqoas2 to beqoas1 but not using the rsync server
rsync -cvaupogzb --suffix=-`date '+%H:%M-%d-%m-%y'` -e ssh file1

I can't push from localhost to remote a rsync server
rsync -Cvaupogzb --suffix=-`date '+%H:%M-%d-%m-%y'`  -e ssh
/var/tmp/rsync-test/  beqoas2::test /var/tmp/rsync-test/

again test is the module name
