Several things to check:
- Is /etc/rsyncd.secrets the correct path?
- Permission on /etc/rsyncd.secrets. If it is o+r then it will
- Are you missing a newline at the end of your /etc/rsyncd.secrets file?
I believe rsync ignores the last line if it ends in EOF instead
of a newline.
- Probably benign, but I'd comment out the "auth users" entry too
