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.)
