ssh and rsyncd.conf

I am able to perform the following line


rsync -rsh="/usr/bin/ssh" filename host:/dir/filename


But I am not able to perform this


rsync -rsh="/usr/bin/ssh" filename host:module_name


where rsyncd.conf contains the following



pid file = /var/run/

log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log

read only = false



   path = /home/test

   comment = New Test



The client thinks that everything is going ok but the file never shows up in
the target directory.


I think that this is because it is using ssh and never reads the rsyncd.conf
file.  I've shut down the rsync -daemon process and 

proved this.  


Now the question.


How do I get rsync to transfer the files using the rules called out in the
rsyncd.conf file while using ssh?
