That is only needed if you are using the "rsync server" and not if you
are using ssh.

You should not have both.  Have either RSYNC_ENABLE=true in
/etc/default/rsync or have an entry in /etc/inetd.conf but not both.

Here you are using ssh.  This is not even using the rsync server.  So
in this case you don't need either of the rsync server configurations.

I know in a previous note that you solved your problem.  But if you
are not using the rsync server then I would undo both of those
