That's what I have written on the bottom of my previous mails

tamtam:/etc# rsync --password-file=/etc/rsyncd.secrets backupcvs at cvs::cvs/ 
@ERROR: auth failed on module cvs
rsync error: partial transfer (code 23) at io.c(143)

                 All seems OK

tamtam:/etc# ls -ltr /etc/rsyncd.secrets 
-rw-------    1 root     root           23 May  7 18:12 

tamtam:/etc# id
uid=0(root) gid=0(root) groups=0(root)


PS for tim: [CYGWIN rsync] I'll do the test next week because of hollyday :-)
	8 May : 2nd World War victory
	9 May : Ascension
       10 May : Go and work for just a day ? no :-)
