--link-dest not working on remote server (running daemon)

Thanks for the reply. The link-dest is different. It is Feb 1 while the
source is Feb 2.
I tried setting path = /media/external/ for the daemon and using
rsync -a -v -i --delete --link-dest=backup-2016-02-01-0100
/media/external/backup/backup-2016-02-02-0100 backup at 192.168.2.102:
So all three (link-dest, source, target) are directories but get the same
result. The directory backup-2016-02-02-0100 is created on the target
server and all files start to be transferred to it. Must be an issue with
the way I'm setting link-dest
