See the rsyncd.conf(5) man page for details and examples:

Maybe you would prefer to use rsync over ssh, like this:

rsync -avr /Volumes/Music/Pictures/ tamara at server:Pictures/

That command will ssh to user "tamara" on "server" and push files to
Pictures/ in that user's home directory.  No daemon is involved.
