[CentOS-mirror] DVD Images, again, please?

I tried to reply to this off-list back when, but presumably that went into a spam filter, so I'll try again on-list :-) 

Yes, our IP is / 2001:468:1601:11fe::2.

As of right now, we can't see the image.

Also, the URL on both the mirror page (http://www.centos.org/modules/tinycontent/index.php?id=13) and the status tracker page is still the old ftp.net.usf.edu one, and missing the http method.

All DVD trees are strictly controlled by allowed IP, as we can't support
everybody and their brother rsyncing those :P

I have to add your IP to the allowed IPs to get those trees.

Is your IP that you will be downloading with the one that resolves from
ftp.usf.edu ... if so I can add that IP to the allowed to sync from the
dvd tree ...
