As long as your server is 2.6.3 or newer, that will prevent any of those
file extensions from being uploaded to the server. You'll see messages
like this when a client tries to send such a file:
skipping server-excluded file "foo.iso"
Your include line is wrong, though -- the trailing comma on the name
is a part of the filename (names are space separated).
Also, your example with +/- prefixes needed to have a single space in
between the +/- and the name (rsync avoids splitting at that infix
