syntax for push to remote rsync server

	we need to tunnel rsync through ssh, we are using rsync to keep
certain critical file's synchronised within a Veritas cluster.  For security
reasons the transmission of these files must use ssh. We were hoping to
build rsync into the cluster as a resource using the daemon option, however
from what you have said that doesn't seem possible. I think we'll have
abandon the daemon option.

In released versions of rsync, you can't combine ssh and daemon mode with
"::"; the -e command is ignored.  In the developer's version of rsync in
that functionality was recently added.   It's not clear whether or not
that's what you really want, however.  What features of the rsync daemon
mode were you hoping to take advantage of?
