Hi Bryan,

Can you please post the command you are using to mirror from the msync servers?

Based on the error message, it appears as though your server's IP address is not in the ACL. This may be for a number of reasons, however, I cannot comment further as I do not have access to the server rsync logs.

Hi, our mirror mozart.ee.ic.ac.uk,, 2a0c:5bc0:40:1082:21b:78ff:fe7b:b824/64

has started to give unknown module errors. Has it been removed from the authorised sync list?
