assuming you replaced "hostwithrsync" with "", you're in. 
It's fine that your /etc/services is a symlink... the important thing is 
that you can see it with rsync over rsh.
Use the rsync-path option, and enjoy the tool.

Re: Rsync Error..

Hello Tim,
Sorry for the late response. I was out of town for weekend. 
Ok, first I tried 
rsync -e rsh --rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/rsync hostwithrsync:/etc/services 

I got the following the output:
-rw-r--r-- 73490 2003/10/27 09.26.50 services
lrwxr-xr-x 15 2003/08/19 08:13:58 services
The file persmissions are different from what you mentioned.
