i don't do any authentication at all.  no user, no pw, but i protect it my ip address.  i don't do anything with rsyncd.secrets either.

thanx again - so when you then issue the rsync command from the source, do you use the name that is on the auth user line, and also somehow specify the password? Or - since there is something in the secrets file, does the user not get prompted? But how on your command do you indicate that it is a particular user?

Crikey there are so many options and so many ways to slice even the (apparently) simplest linux commands ...
