% perror 13
Error code  13:  Permission denied

This means the server can't read the file.  Most likely the permissions
you have on it don't allow other users to read it, and the server probably
runs as a different user than you.  You can either make the file world
readable, or use the --local option to have the client send the file to the
server over the connection.

I'm assuming the server is on the same machine; if it's not, only the
--local approach will work.
