The complicated filter rule used by me worked for one Debian mirror and not for the other.

Anyway, thanks for your above notes again.  I finally use the nmap to 
check the things you said above are correct:

werner at debian:~$ nmap -sV -p873
873/tcp open  rsync   (protocol version 30)

werner at debian:~$ nmap -sV -p873
873/tcp open  rsync   (protocol version 29)

Of course, you can try to use them ;-)

Let we stay here to expect for the experiences from others similar to my 
case ;-)
