rsync .gz files?

I've run across a situation where I have a directory of .gz files.  I do
want to rsync this directory.

I've tried without the --compress (because they are already compressed) but
the files never get rsynced.

Interactively, I get the following error:
:rsync error: some files could not be transferred (code 23) at main.c(1045)

In the /etc/rsyncd.log, for each of the files, I get:
send_files failed to open /backup/exp_dbase_2005-06-2
8.gz: Permission denied

My command is:
rsync --verbose  --progress --stats --rsh=/usr/bin/ssh --recursive --delete
prsvr01::prod-db/backup/* /prod/db/backup

My module on the source host is:
   path = /prod/db
   comment = /prod/db
   uid = nobody
   gid = nobody
   read only = yes
   list = yes
   auth users = root
   secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.scrt
   hosts allow =

What am I missing?
