I running rsync in daemon mode (rsync --daemon)
Everything seems to work well until I try to protect item with

here is my /etc/rsyncd.conf :

use chroot = yes
max connections = 10
syslog facility = local5

        path = /var/ftp
        comment = ftp
        secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.secrets
        auth users = gate1

here is my /etc/rsyncd.secrets


Here is the result of execution :

/etc > rsync rsync://gate1@localhost/ftp/
@ERROR: auth failed on module ftp
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (87 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(165)
/etc >

What could it be ???
I have RSync 2.5.6 running on FreeBSD 4.8

Best regards,
