rsync to download Fedora Core iso image

More and more mirror sites of Fedora Core offer the rsync capability for getting the iso images. It is therefore necessary for me to practise downloading by rsync. I have tried the following with success :

#rsync -zvP rsync://fedora.mirrors.hkt.cc/fedora/releases/11/Fedora/i386/iso/Fedora-11-i386-DVD.iso .

Note the -P attribute which is quite important to monitor progress of transfer and the estimated time remaining.
