Did you write the destination with a single colon?  If so, replace it
with a double colon.  A single colon indicates rsync over a remote
shell; you have to use a double colon to access an rsync daemon.  This
is a very common mistake.

If that isn't the problem, please send your rsync command line and
daemon configuration file so I have a clue what your setup is.
