First off, look for error messages in the log file that the daemon is
logging into (it will be one of your syslog files since you did not
override it).  Also, your config file didn't specify a uid, so it is
defaulting to running the daemon as user "nobody", so it may be a
permissions problem after all.  See the uid and gid settings in the
rsyncd.conf manpage.
