Remember that rsync uses ssh as its transport and if there are issues rsync
might still be affected by them. A common issue with ssh is having name
lookups enabled when DNS isn't available so adding 'UseDNS no' to
/etc/ssh/ssh_config and /etc/ssh/sshd_config should help there. If there
are genuine issues with connectivity then adding 'ServerAliveInterval 60'
may help.
