[Dirvish] Permissions and access

Correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding of how Dirvish works is that
the  backup server logins into the server to be backed up as root and
rsync's the data. I don't want to give my backup server root access to my
main server. Is there a way to push the data from the main server instead
of pulling it from the backup server? Eg: a daily cron job on the main
server that sends the data to the backup server (and logins in to the
backup server as a non-root user)?

Thanks,

Ben
