I am not able to get it running properly. 
# ps aux|grep rsync
root      8121  0.0  0.6  1936  644 pts0     S    17:43   0:00 grep 

Does that mean rsync is not running at all? But using the example you 
gave I can still get the files,

How exactly do I start the daemon? I have it now in xinetd file as,

        disable = no
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        user            = root
        server          = /usr/bin/rsync
        server_args     = --daemon
        log_on_failure  += USERID

Thanks in advance.
With warm regards,
