One thing which might be of interest is that there's a change in the
works to have more flexible timeouts in lcg-utils, although it may not
help with this:

between the port ranges that means the data channel sometimes doesn't
connect depending on which port it picks - but I could be completely
wrong. You could ask the remote site which ports they have open in their
