Exclude Syntax Question

I have an rsync daemon running on a Windows box.  It has a module 
called "temp" that allows users to write to a specific directory.  My 
rsync.conf looks like:

use chroot = false
strict modes = false
max connections = 3
hosts allow =
lock file = rsyncd.lock
log file = rsyncd.log
pid file = rsyncd.pid
timeout = 600
refuse options = h I c a delete

comment = WSS Polling TEMP Main
path = /cygdrive/c/temp
exclude from = temp_exclude
write only = true
transfer logging = yes

...in the "temp_exclude" file I have:

+ /*.zip
+ /*.xfo
+ /*.trg
- /*

...I'm calling rsync from the client with:

rsync -rvvv /client/temp/

...inside of the local "/client/temp" directory I have serveral zip 
files but for some reason it skips them?  The rsync.log, I 
get, "skipping server excluded file..." and the list of the zip 
files?  I want to be able to send to the server the list of file 
extensions as specified by the exclude file, but nothing else.  What 
am I doing wrong?
