Can I let rsync only transer a part of file within specific byte ranges?

Hi all,

Suppose I have a file on the remote rsync server:


And I want to only retrieve a part of the file based a ranges of bytes to 
my local host, say, 0-499, means only transfer the first 500 bytes of 
that file.

Is this possible with rsync client?
