No rights are necessary. I tried it all :-(
The only way to run rsync with pre/post xfer in Vista is:
- install sshd
- run rsyncd as a windows service under an own user
- ssh from another machine into this user. If you want you can log out
immediatly. But an "ssh ... whoami" isn't enough.
- connect to the rsyncd an run your backup.

I do not understand why this ssh login is necessary or where my mistake.
