The problem seems to be that ssh can't find and run rdiff-backup on
the remote machine.  So try:

    ssh remote.machine rdiff-backup

When you can get that to print:

    Error: No arguments given
    See the rdiff-backup manual page for instructions

instead of the "bash: rdiff-backup: command not found" error, then the
original thing you wanted to do should work.
