Yes, one way or the other.
Append -e "ssh -l root"
or if you have an identity key, so you won't have to type password (this
is copy/paste from a previous bug repport)
-e "ssh -i /root/.ssh/rsync/id_dsa -l root"
Are you running a rsync server on the IBM?
In case you aren't you can try this (again copy/paste)
rsync --server --daemon --config=/root/rsync/conf .
log file = /var/log/rsyncd.log
pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid
use chroot = no
path = /
max connections = 1
list = no
uid = root
include from = /root/rsync/include
exclude from = /root/rsync/exclude
hosts allow = <IP>,127.0.0.1
transfer logging = yes
refuse options = delete*
Remove the double dashed lines (the equal signs) and replace IP with the
client (your case G4) IP.
