rsync uses TCP over port 873 if you run it in server mode.
I have successfully used it this way through a gauntlet
firewall after setting up an outgoing
plug proxy for this port.

I've just tried it successfully with ZoneAlarm (free)
version 2.6.357 - though I did have to click allow on
several zonealarm popup boxes before it would start
properly.  For this test I was using it in non-server
mode, where you specify the remote rsync executable
location using the -rsync-path= option, and use
rsh access.
