Root privilege solution

Turns out "nobody" had been removed from our password files.
I have used the "uid = " global setting and all appears good.
Last question. Can a daemon version of rsync using the rsyncd.conf file be configured to only allow access to "modules" and no other part of the remote side's file system?
Thanks for your help.

Does your system not have a user "nobody" in the passwd file? You can
always set the user via the uid option (e.g. "uid = root") so that rsync
doesn't try to switch to the default user of "nobody".
