Skipping unreadable files

That brings up an interesting question.. So far, all of the WAN rsync's I
do use an SSH tunnel, and not the rsync daemon on the server end. However,
while doing an rsync, I notice the "rsync --server" process running on the
source box. Will the below flag "ignore nonreadable = true" in
/etc/rsyncd.conf still work?
I use this syntax on the receiving/initiating end:
rsync -avzpogDt --force -e "ssh -i /root/.ssh/example_key "

You have to do it on the server side, with
ignore nonreadable = true
