Hi, yes, the system does accept ranges, but we usually prefer smaller 
ranges than those that you specified. The idea is that the ACL entry 
should be big enough so that it would allow the ISP to operate their 
mirror, but small enough so that the ISP's customers would be outside 
that IP address range. We do still prefer listing specific IP addresses 
if possible.

In this particular case you don't seem to be in the business of 
providing computing capacity for your clients, so using a bigger IP 
address range would not violate the above principles. I have now added 
those two IP address ranges, so you should now be able to rsync directly 
from rsync://us-msync.centos.org/CentOS/
