Since you say that you are using routers, could you double-check that  
your routers do in fact have TCP port 873 open (this being the one  
used to contact rsync daemons)?  If that doesn't help, then the best  
that I can suggest is that you might have a firewall running  
somewhere that you don't know about.  Any other suggestions that  
users might have would be most welcome.

Kind regards,
