It looks like the connection works.  The last line is a NNTP data line.
Now try the same command from inside Gnus, see the nntp-open-connection
function.  I don't have access to this server so I can't check what's
blocking you, you'll have to do a bit of debugging.  Basically use
(debug "step X") statements in the code to see where it blocks.
