rsync: failed to connect to media ( Connection timed out (110)

running fedora 25, I'm trying to copy (sync) two local directories but can't understand the error I get. I have a NAS mounted at /media/disc2/ and a usb drive mounted at /media/drive2, I can see the contents of both folders in the console. I want to copy the NAS contents to the usb drive and I'm using this command:
/usr/bin/rsync -art  -vv --progress rsync://media/disc2/videos/  /media/drive2/
but it gives this error:
opening tcp connection to media port 873
rsync: failed to connect to media ( Connection timed out (110)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(125) [Receiver=3.1.2]
My nas is on my LAN at 172.16.1.x and I don't understand where rsync gets from. Thanks for any help.

update: solved - the correct command was
/usr/bin/rsync -art -vv --progress /media/disc2/videos/ /media/drive2/
