rsync on AS400-PASE and AIX rsync binary installation

We are currently replicating several of our servers to a remote colocation using rsync 3.0.6 on Mac OS X 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6.  We also have an AS400 system and would like to replicate some of its files, contained in an IFS file system, to the Mac server running rsync at the colocation facility. The AS400 system is in the hands of specialists within our organization who are well versed in configuring and maintaining the system.
My online searches have turned up references to a PASE add-on that allows AIX binaries to be installed and run on an AS400 system. One reference I have found says that rsync needs to be run in daemon mode on the AS400 end but does not provide any details. This reference is from 2002 and I have not found anything more recent.

Can anyone point me to more complete information on installing and running rsync on AS400, including the use of PASE and the AIX rsync binary?
