No port forwading is necessary nor recommended.
rsync does ssh natively when you specify user at host: I.e.:
rsync dir1 user at host:/dir2
This how rsync is used 98% of the time.
(If you actually want to speak to an honest-to-goodness rsync server that's
already running, you have to use the rsync:// url syntax.)
