You aren't trying to talk to the rsync daemon, you're trying to connect
via a remote shell.  Remember that an second -v is always enough to see
what rsync is trying to do -- i.e. if it is running a remote shell or
opening a port to an rsync daemon.

See the man page for the daemon syntax (look for the double colons):

You'll also need to use a module name in that command (unless "var" was
a module name listed in the daemon's config file).
