Blocked Firewall port
rsync: failed to connect to contextgarden.net: Connection timed out (116) rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(122) [receiver=3.0.2]
You are most probably behind a firewall. Make sure that port 873 is open. If you cannot make any changes yourself and if your admin objects, you probably won't be able to use rsync for the distribution.
If your firewall uses a proxy server, you need to tell the details to rsync. One is to set
RSYNC_PROXY variable in the terminal or your startup script (
.bashrc or the corresponding file for your shell). Replace username, password, proxyhost and proxyport with the correct information.
Sometimes port 873 is blocked. In this case, you can use ssh port tunneling and the program
(netcat) to redirect an open port.
