EASY!!!

just go to https://access.redhat.com/site/downloads#downloads-page, select DOWNLOAD SOFTWARE, and then log in with your RedHat username and password...

Of course, you will have to have a current support aggreement to do it....

That's both correct and incorrect.

The download location is correct; however, you do NOT have to pay for RHEL to download it or use it...you register/log in to their website for free, and download away. What you DO have to pay for is patches/bugfixes/security updates/support. And if you're going to build a server with RHEL, and NOT pay for it, that's a VERY BAD IDEA. Your server will be insecure and unstable VERY quickly, and loading new software will be MUCH more difficult. If you want RHEL for free, load CentOS.

And OP, why are you loading RHEL to start with, and why aren't you loading the latest version, which is 6.5??? And please, OP...try to look things like this up, rather than asking people to look them up for you.

Chuckling...I unfortunatly have the experience TBOne has eluded to. With Redhat everything past go (the os dl)costs you plenty. I tried but never could get a stable system functioning. I second the notion of using CentOS.

It's really odd...I created an unsupported "free" RedHat account yesterday, and I cannot get anything EXCEPT RHEL 3 and older.....

See attached screen capture.... I querried TB0ne about it yesterday, and he didn't know what the problem could be either....

Looks like they've tightened up their policy; you've got (in that img) RHEL7 (next beta) or RHEL3 (no longer supported) or RH9 (also no longer supported).
Maybe you have to supply some sort of credentials eg a contact email/phone to get a trial of current release.

In any case, its fairly pointless; use Centos instead, especially since those 2 have got a lot closer recently http://www.redhat.com/about/news/pre...os-join-forces

Hi. Linux Bible (book and CDs) at the local library by me has that plus other Linuces. Best wishes and have fun.

If you sign up with a 'personal' account, you won't see it. If you sign up with a corporate account, you can. Both are free, but the corporate one is the type that will get you the 30 day evaluation period w/downloads of different versions.

But I agree totally...if you're going to use RHEL, you need to pay for it. Otherwise, use CentOS....putting a server in place at a company that you KNOW had no support/updates/patches/fixes, and that installing new software on will be MUCH harder, is a recipe for headaches later. CentOS gets free updates...RHEL doesn't.

you can also pay for the $99/yr developer package and get just about everything RH offers fully supported with near unlimited license. enjoy.

I second the recommendation to either buy support from RedHat or use a free clone if you can't.
Besides the already mentioned CentOS, you have also Scientific Linux
and Springdale.
