If rsync uses ssh, it starts a personal rsync daemon for the request
rather than connecting to a pre-running daemon.  If you want to talk
to an existing daemon over ssh, you should use ssh's port-forwarding
feature (where you use ssh to link a local port to a remote port and
then get rsync to just connect to the local port without using ssh).
Or use something like stunnel if you want SSL-based port forwarding.
