rsync yum repositories


I'm having a problem figuring out how to sync up my home repository with rsync. I've varified that my machine can rsync files in and out without the rsync://, but I can't seem to get my box to talk to rsync:// sites.

I've tried:

Code:
rsync -avrt rsync://distro.ibiblio.org/fedora-linux-core/updates/3/i386  --exclude=debug/ /yum/fedora/core/3/i386/updates/
and
Code:
rsync -av --exclude debug rsync://mirrors.kernel.org:/fedora/core/updates/3/i386/* /yum/fedora/core/3/i386/updates/
Each time it takes about a minute and I get this error:

Code:
rsync: failed to connect to distro.ibiblio.org: Connection timed out (110)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(94)
I've put the rsync_proxy in my .bash_profile but that didn't matter. Any other ideas? I am going through a proxy but I would think that my rsync_proxy would take care of that.

Thanks again!

Well, all I can think of is that my proxy server is blocking the rsync protocol and using the RSYNC_PROXY= doesn't fix it. Does anyone update thier repositories with FTP, HTTP or SSH? I don't really care how I get the updates, I'd just like to...

It's so strange that I can use rsync to move files through the proxy, I just can't receive.

Thanks for the help.
