Dear Rsync list,

I am running an rsync deamon on a linux box "diesel".  If I have no firewall 
(iptables) it works fine.  If I have a firewall it doesn't work - just times 
out.  This problem occurs <even> if I open port 873.  Any hints? I am sure 
there is something simple to do here like open another range of ports but I 
can't find the info.

In case I need to open a range of other ports but this is not allowed (by my 
network at router level) can I restrict rsync to specific ones?
