As Jawad said, you'll have to setup the rsync daemon rsyncd and then
have dirvish to use the daemon instead of ssh. The latter is easy, just
enter the corresponding module name from the rsyncd.conf WITH A LEADING
":" in the tree field of your dirvish default.conf:

tree: :modulname/path/

The ":" will result in a "::" for the final rsync command dirvish
generates, telling rsync to use its daemon instead of a remote shell
like ssh.

How to setup rsyncd you'll find many tutorials on the web. Or look into
the Manpages for rsync and rsyncd.conf. If you have further questions
after that, feel free to ask here.

Alas, you'll HAVE to do a little setup work of either rsyncd or ssh.
