It's completely invalid to specify a client command when expecting a
server command.  Just run rsync with 2 -v options to see the command it
it sending to the remote system, and will will tell you what command to
expect.  See also the support/rrsync script thta can be used as the
forced command=/path/rrsync script to limit the rsync command(s) that
you accept.
