According to the manpage and other docs, it also 
possible to use ssh to connect to a daemon using 
"::".  However, you must use the --rsh="ssh ..." 
option instead of the -e.

"o      for  copying  from the local machine to a 
remote machine using a remote shell program as the 
transport, using rsync server on the remote 
machine.  This is invoked when the destination 
path contains a :: separator and the --rsh=COMMAND 
option is also provided.

> Pick one.  Either "rsync -aurvlpogt kk.txt XXX.YYY.ZZZ::pruebas1", or "
> rsync -aurvlpogt -e ssh kk.txt XXX.YYY.ZZZ:/path/to/pruebas1".  For the 
> latter, you'll have to get ssh working between the two systems.
