Wayne's point of saying "use a daemon" (to paraphrase a bit :-)
is to eliminate use of ssh. By explicitly passing an --rsh option you
tell rsync to connect via ssh, and then start a one-off rsync daemon for
Try starting the rsync daemon separately first on the remote, i.e.
rsync --daemon --config /etc/rsyncd.conf
Then do the transfer like this:
rsync -a rsyncuser at example.com::rsync_module/files /path/to/bak/
Add nice -n 19 where appropriate :-) (on one or both ends, depending on
what you want).
