The issues and debugging page on the rsync website gives some advice on
how to investigate a hang.  It mentions running netstat on each system
to check on the state of the Send-Q and Recv-Q for the socket, and also
using a tool such as strace or truss to see what system calls each
process gets stuck on.  If you can provide this information, it will
help us to diagnose the problem.
