Hello Tim,
Sorry for the late response. I was out of town for weekend. 
Ok, first I tried   
rsync -e rsh --rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/rsync hostwithrsync:/etc/services 
I got the following the output:
-rw-r--r-- 73490 2003/10/27 09.26.50 services
lrwxr-xr-x 15 2003/08/19 08:13:58 services
The file persmissions are different from what you mentioned.
With three v's i got the following output:
Or like this, with three "v"s.

So, I suppose the problem is not something related to rsync timeout.
I really appreciate for your time and help. 

I uncommented shell in inetd.conf on the destination system. 

The command " rsh which rsync" is working fine now . 
I get the output /usr/local/bin/rsync. 

But the command: 

rsync -avvznrbe rsh /sourcepath 

Still does not work. I get the same error as i used to get before.

opening connection using rsh rsync --server -vvbnlogDtprz . 
/destinationpath operation timed out
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes read so far)
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(189)
