You don't actually need a server running, rsync just needs to be available
on the other host. The client side of rsync will run rsync on the remote
end--that's all it's actually doing when it runs ssh (or rsh).
rsync defaults to ssh for me (not rsh), so I don't have to give it any
extra arguments. I'm not sure if that's the default or a Debian patch.
(If it's not the default upstream, it should be.)
