If you're using SSH for a transport, you can't block  rsync usage from 
/etc/hosts.*, because rsync isn't hitting any ports directly, SSH is. 
(You could, of course, limit what hosts people were allowed to SSH from. 
   But that's not really a topic for this list, that's a topic for the 
SSH list.)  On the other hand, if you're using rsync without the SSH 
transport, in daemon mode, your OS may not know natively what "rsync" 
means, in which case you'd have to specify the actual port number (873)
