This is at least the third time you have asked this.  You
don't provide enough info for anyone to address it.

It sounds to me like the rsync transfer isn't even using the
rsync daemon.

Next time send a copy of your rsyncd.conf file and the exact
command-line that is able to get the /etc/passwd file.
