Thanks. It turns out I needed to add rsync to my ipchains. Once I did that I
was able to connect correctly and log the information.

I knew it was something really really basic on my end.

Short answer: yes

Unless you specified a log file it will try to use syslog.
Check your syslog.conf to see what daemon.* will do.
