Cool. Did that and it did not work. After I compiled the new version
of rsync, I killed the old rsync -daemon and ran the new version. Then
I used the new version to get 'testdir' module and still get the access
denied error message while the rsync.log complains about...
2006/03/08 11:25:12  malformed address localhost.localdomain
2006/03/08 11:25:12  malformed address dev01.foo.com (rsync
2006/03/08 11:25:12  rsync denied on module testdir from
"hosts allow" is turned off globably. So I "should" not get a denied
message in the rsync.log.
