We use it all the time to sync between our servers and external content
servers. We are at 7.1 of i5/OS. I too think you have a config issue.

Has anyone had success getting the rsync daemon to work in 7.1? I have
installed version 3.1.0-1 from Michael Perzl's website, along with popt
1.16-1 (dependency). I would like to configure it to run as a daemon to
synchronize files for our website from a development machine to the IFS.
The rsync executable runs fine to sync files from one directory to another
in the IFS (for example), but it fails when started as a daemon/server.
When I check, nothing is running on the default port 873.

rsync --daemon --log-file=/tmp/rsync.log
