Rsync ignoring secrets file

I have a strange problem. I've tried for the first time to install and
use rsyncd. Rsync itself works it does everything that it should do,
except ask for a password. Google and the manual wasn't helpful i just
found howto's and no solution.
Here is what i did:
pid file = /var/run/rsyncd.pid
use chroot = yes
read only = yes
Simple example for enabling your own local rsync server
path = /usr/portage
comment = Gentoo Linux Portage tree
exclude = /distfiles /packages
uid = root
gid = root
auth user = dennis,test
secrets file = /etc/rsyncd.scrt
commandline to sync
rsync -r -v --progress --stats -o -g -p -t
Why is rsync never prompting for a password?
For any help thanks in advance.
