Most likely you are behind a firewall that blocks the rsync port. Try to
telnet to the server (e.g. sunsite.org.uk) at port 873. I don't know how to do
this in NT's telnet, but it should be possible; otherwise there are multiple
"intelligent" telnet replacements ;-)  Anyway, you should get connected and
see "@RSYNCD: 20" and a welcome message. If this works, the rsync program is
the problem. If this doesn't work, your firewall is blocking rsync. Please
report your experiences.
