For the past two days, upload.osgeo.org no longer responds properly to anonymous rsync requests at 'rsync://upload.osgeo.org/download/libtiff/', which corresponds to TCP port 873.
Rsync is useful for sites which want to automatically mirror the libtiff distribution and test files, with a minimum of overhead.
I have enough access to the server to verify that the rsync configuration (/etc/rsyncd.conf) is still present and that rsync should be started via a legacy init script (/etc/init.d/rsync).
I am able to test rsync using its script and it does report a problem for the past two days:

A system administrator is needed to investigate and fix this issue. Perhaps there might be other server issues as well.
