Default rsync problem with local rsync server

Trying to be "kinder and gentler" to the Gentoo mirrors, I set up my
"hot backup machine" to "emerge --rsync" from my main machine. I
followed the instructions in
http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Local_Rsync_Mirror#Official_Gentoo_Linux_rsy nc_Mirrors_Policy_and_Guide

main machine is "d530" 192.168.123.250
hot backup is "d531" 192.168.123.251

So I
- emerge --synce on my main machine (d530)
- ssh into d531
- su to root
- run "emerge --sync"

The client machine (d531) sees the following error 3 times and gives up...

================================================== ==========
>>> Starting retry 3 of 3 with rsync://192.168.123.250
>>> Checking server timestamp ...
@ERROR: Unknown module 'metadata'
rsync error: error starting client-server protocol (code 5) at main.c(1386) [receiver=2.6.9]
>>> Exceeded PORTAGE_RSYNC_RETRIES: 3
================================================== ==========

The host machine says the following in /var/log/messages
The "connect" and "unknown module" messages are repeated 3 times

================================================== ==========
Jul 4 20:43:01 d530 rsyncd[21988]: rsyncd version 3.0.2 starting, listening on port 873
Jul 4 20:46:13 d530 rsyncd[22028]: connect from d531.waltdnes.org (192.168.123.251)
Jul 4 20:46:13 d530 rsyncd[22028]: unknown module 'metadata' tried from d531.waltdnes.org (192.168.123.251)
================================================== ==========

I'm running 32-bit i686 on an Intel Core2 duo on a pair of Dell d530
desktops.

It seems you have rsync://<yourhost>/ instead of
rsync://<yourhost>/gentoo-portage/ on your make.conf
Also, check /etc/rsync.conf on your server to ensure that
gentoo-portage module listed there.

Thank you very much. That was the exact mistake I made. It's working
properly now after I corrected it.
