Technically, only the receiver is a daemon; the sender is the client.

On each end, are you certain that the copy of rsync whose version you're
checking is the same one involved in the file transfer? For the client,
prepend "rsync --version &&" to the command line. For the daemon, look
in its log file (or syslog in /var/log/messages if you didn't specify a
log file) for a message of the form "rsyncd version X.X.X starting". If
you don't get the version you want, make sure that your custom-built
rsync is first on the $PATH of the program that is running the client or
starting the daemon.
