Rsync failed to connect - Connection timed out

Rsync Failed to connect / Connection Timed out

While was configuring the yum local repository, I faced the following error

# rsync -avrt rsync:// --exclude=debug/ --exclude=drpms/ --exclude=repodata/ --exclude=*debuginfo* --exclude=*i18* --exclude=*langpack* /yum/fedora/linux/updates/12/i386

rsync: failed to connect to Connection timed out (110)
rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(124) [receiver=3.0.6]

Then I realized that the rsync port 783 was not enabled in the firewall. After enabling the outgoing port, it started synchronizing.
