Is this really ok on a CentOS mirror? In the mirror list it says that
you support HTTP but with this config that is not true for ISOs.

For most people this probably makes no difference, but there are
networks where stupid NAT and/or firewalls lets you access HTTP but not

I limit the amount of connections/IP to 2 for the ISOs instead, this
seems to work quite ok against download accelerators.
