comment rsync not removing single quotes around array of strings --filter list
I was able to get it to work by just removing the single-quotes from the line which adds the component to the filter line; this is the second change you suggested.

comment Port 22 is closed even with Firewall turned off
Your outbound attempts at creating a connection are what is failing and could be better addressed on SuperUser; I've flagged it to be moved there.

comment Port 22 is closed even with Firewall turned off
A TCP connection(which you're trying to establish) always has 4 parts: source IP, destination IP, source port, & destination port. Source IP is always your; it's your address. Destination IP tells the Internet where you're trying to go. Destination port(in this case 22) tells the other system what service you're trying to connect to. Source port tells your system which copy of PuTTY originated the connection; you can have several running and all going to the same box. Source port will usually be random; destination port is usually the same for a given kind of connection.

Your web tool is telling you that port 22 inbound(coming to you) is closed. The host support guys are talking about port 22 outbound(going away from you).

Why do you need it to be open?

comment Port 22 is closed even with Firewall turned off
There are three states of ports: OPEN, CLOSED, and STEALTH. OPEN means that something is listening on it and there is a path to it from your web tool; nothing is blocking it. The only difference between that and CLOSED is that nothing is listening on it. STEALTH means that something is blocking the path to it from your web tool, usually a firewall, regardless if it would be otherwise OPEN or CLOSED.
