I setup an encryption where only file differences are transferred. When I do a test on one machine with both ends of the transfer on the same machine, it does not work.

There are a loopback detection algorithm to stop a flood of data going back and forth. This makes it impossible to make a test setup where both originating machine and destination machine of data transfer is the same machine.
NOTE: this is an use case where you want securely transfer data (and save bandwidth by only transferring changes to files when the other machine already have an old version of that file).
