Jim:  first - glad to see you're able to reach the group again.
Second:  In later messages, he'd found and fixed true rsh - to where "rsh 
remotehost which rsync" returned "/usr/local/bin/rsync", and still got the 
timeout on actual rsyncs.
I sent an enormous number of possible outputs he could get and what they'd 
mean, and haven't heard back.  I think that might have been late Friday.

Tim already answered your question for you.  Your remote system is not 
answering on port 514, only on port 513.  See your OS's rsh man page for 
further details - this isn't really an rsync question, it's an rsh
