Howto mirror a web site

I tried with rsync, but it didn't work:
$ rsync --recursive /home/ivanatora/shits/dms/
rsync: failed to connect to Connection timed out
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(83)
Although I can browse via web browser it says that cannot connect. I tried to add 'www.' before the hostname with no success.
If I can't use rsync to do this work, what should I try?

They must have rsync enabled on their site or server from my knowledge.

Use wget to mirror the site.

man wget for many options and the man pages.

If it is your own site and you have ftp access then "ftpcopy" is also a good bet.
