1 Try checking the DNS resolution on the system.
3 I had been keeping my primary system up-to-date with a nightly rsync to the gentoo servers; however, the server stopped when a DHCP Client update knocked out my /etc/resolve.conf; I had to fix it by recreating my /etc/resolve.conf as /etc/resolve.conf.head. (I probably did something stupid somewhere with env-update; I don't know how long it went so I can't say if it was my fault, emerge's fault, or env-update's fault.)
5 Any how, once I got the DNS working again, it worked fine. Otherwise it just reported a timeout.

19 Hi,
21 I have a rsync server on a older machine and I'm trying to emerge --sync
22 another machine to the server. When I do this my emerge --sync times
23 out. I'm pretty sure that it's because the rsync server is on an old
24 machine (but I could be wrong) and was wondering does anyone knows how
25 to increase the timeout time for emerge --sync?
27 Thanks,
