The Akamai should actually work pretty smoothly. Just make sure you've closed out the regular MS download manager you would have been trying so they don't bump into each other. Suppose you might have to restart after installing the Akamai or something, too.

All MS is doing is diverting the new heavy downloads to Akamai so the rest of Technet gets freed up for normal use.

Thanks poin2 - tried a re-boot and obviously stopped the MS DL manager but still no joy.... We are behind a proxy server (which I administer) but unfortunately the tracking function isn't working so difficult to trace my traffic!?!!

I'll just have to leave the MS going for the moment at circa 50-70KB/sec

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll let you know if I find out why it keeps erroring but at work so might have to wait.....

EDIT - ISA 2006 looks like it isn't passing authentication through so got a laptop and getting it through our business broadband connection!! WOO-HOO!!!!

Anyone have any idea when Server 2008 R2 is going to be released on Technet? Earlier reports stated Windows 7 and 2008 R2 were going to be released at the same time, but as of yet, no sign of server.....

August 14th. The reason being that they wanted to wait, so as to alleviate the bandwith issues that would arrise from both going live at the same time.
