You probably didn't really mean to use "::" -- use ":" instead (and stop
that rsync daemon -- you don't need it if you go this route).

Alternately, read the rsyncd.conf manpage to learn how to properly setup
a rsyncd.conf file, complete with one or more modules (and leave the
daemon running if you go this route).
