No - you only need a "normal" rsync installed on each side. rsync uses a
ssh/rsh connection to copy the data, so you don't need a special server.
rsync starts itself on the remote server over the ssh connection. If you
run a high-volume site, an rsync server is available (though this has had
quite a few security issues in the past).
