Ok, what I am trying to do is use rsync to copy a directory and its contents to a remote server that I access you using ssh. I have been looking at the man page and I came up with
rsync -arvv -e ssh /home/local_dir ssh_login@server_address:./Backup
If I remove the : after the adress it makes the backup on the local computer.
Any clues about how I can do this simple task?

Looks ok at a glance. What error are you getting?
You might change the remote path to look like:
rsync -arvv -e ssh /home/local_dir ssh_login@server_address:/home/login/Backup

$ ssh_login@server_address which rsync

What I'd recommend is providing, along with your other options:
It seems like rsync on the client side is confused by that strange path (even though it's apparently in the user's PATH). So providing it explicitly may be the solution.

Yes it is a Solaris server.
And *drum role* it worked! Stating the remote rsync path did the job. Thank you a ton anomie.
And thanks bigtomrodney, I was guessing at the options.
