All these "downloads" stopped when I set up
a redirect of the .iso downloads to use ftp

Real downloaders don't have a problem with this
as the browser or wget just continues downloading
via ftp.

Unfortunately, this is against CentOS rules, so
we are no longer on the mirror list for http
access (although it still works - for non .iso

As I understand it is the reason for not accepting
this redirect of .iso files is that some users
can't do ftp downloads because of proxy settings.

If this restriction is lifted, please let me know.
