Did you either startup an "rsync --daemon" manually on the server or
setup [x]inetd to spawn "rsync --daemon" when someone connects to the
rsync port?  When you use the "::" syntax, there needs to be an rsync
daemon to handle the connection.  The alternative is to use just one ":"
instead of "::" and let ssh handle the connection.
