Thank's, I understand it. On the client I see the connection established, but don't
send or receive any data
(exception username/password for authtentication).

I have another question.
If I set  --user and --group on the server username/password authentication always
fail (without these all ok)
I used auth-pam.pl script for authentication (from sample-script).

once more: Thank's
