The server has no idea what file the client is sending it (even if it
did the client would be free to lie).  The server only knows what file
the client is asking to change/create/delete on the server.

You can certainly confine the client to the /n2p/cfg directory through
rsyncd.conf or rrsync but you can't really control what the client
intends to put there.

filter/include/exclude in rsyncd.conf only controls what files on the
server a client can access.
