problems preserving permissions -

I recently installed Rsync to perform backup features - this
includes backing up a /home dir and keeping ownerships/permissions
intact is obviously very important....
However when I perform.
(current working path is /home)
rsync -azv --progress --stats * andrew at 192.168.0.2::tmp/home
and on the server side of things... I have it setup like so -
motd file = /etc/rsyncd.motd
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log
pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid
lock file = /var/run/rsync.lock
path = /usr/rsync/tmp
comment = Temp
uid = nobody
gid = nobody
read only = no
list = yes
auth users = andrew
secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.secrets
The permissions are kept well - but the owership isn't kept - instead it
is set to nobody.nobody on the server - any ideas?
Many thanks - I know it is something small - but I am not sure what it is :(
I am running a turbolinux 6.5 server system for reference.
