Sorry, I forgot to include the -r option (because -r is not implied by -a when
--files-from is used).  Note also tat the -R option you added is already assumed
by --files-from.  So replace the "R" with a "r" and it will work.

However, as I said in my first reply, you don't need to do any of that for a
transfer that is rooted at "/".  Just do this:

rsync -aRz /usr/local/blackboard rsync://localhost:1873/backup/client/rsync/

Rsync knows how to properly handle a leading slash on the source path.
