Hello Hendrik and thanks for your reply.

I have to say that on a similar setup, I'm succeeding with the command I
told you before.
I think I have to go a bit deeper in details: I'm using BackupPC and
this piece of software connects remotely to Synology NAS with ssh and
It works as follows:
1) SSH tunnel gets opened by:
/var/lib/backuppc/tunnel.sh -fC root at synology.remote -L
8881:127.0.0.1:873 sleep 60
where tunnes.sh contains:
ssh $@ 1>/dev/null 2>/dev/null && echo "SSH started successfully."
2) rsync starts to transfer files within the SSH tunnel.
Where may I need to look for configuration or permission errors?
The differences between the two Synology NAS, besides the hardware ones,
are their firmware versions. Still, the rsync is the same version:
"3.0.4 protocol version 30".
Any other thing?
