[racket-dev] Connection issue with the "Infogroep" mirror

I'm one of the new server administrators of the "Infogroep" server that 
mirrors the racket executables at http://download.racket-lang.org. For a 
while now I'm getting log messages saying that rsync is no longer able 
to connect to download.racket-lang.org (timeout error). I've tried to 
test the most basic things (DNS reachable, firewall, etc.) and I 
discoverd that the server is reachable over HTTP but not with 
rsync/pinging. I get the same results on my local machine on a different 

So my question is: has something changed in the infrastructure of the 
download server at racket-lang.org? If so, could you please send us the 
new connection parameters that need to be used to keep in sync with the 
latest releases?

Thanks in advance,
