Windows 7: Technet problem -- Cannot now download ANYTHING -- subscription IS OK

08 Jun 2011   #1

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers
Technet problem -- Cannot now download ANYTHING -- subscription IS OK

Anybody else experiencing this problem

Cannot download ANYTHING from Technet any more -- My subscription IS valid and I haven't certainly passed any stuff on to "Torrents" etc etc.

Anybody else got this problem

Is it a temporary glitch or =are the rules (and hence value) of Technet changing again.

I'm tryng the local support center now and will post result.

currently I get the following screen

Added -- I rang MS (UK call center seemed the BEST and quickest) !!
They said Server has problems -- should be up on line in a few hours time

( I thought I'd done something wrong).
