[RndTbl] Fedora mirror useless for yum

The MUUG mirror appears to be useless for using for yum updates.

Running yum against it works for a while but often dies with:

---> Downloading header for ntp to pack into transaction set.
[Errno 4] IOError: [Errno ftp error] [Errno ftp error] 502 Command REST 
not allowed by policy.
Trying other mirror.

It looks like REST is denied by ftp.muug.mb.ca and yum doesn't seem to 
provide a way to disable using REST.

Any chance the server could be made to allow this?  Or any chance of 
mirroring it via http too?
