up2date


Just curious if people are having difficulties with running up2date.
It says that the server is too busy for demo accounts or something like that. ?

Is redhat trying to make people buy their software ? and slowly annoy ppl that are using DEMO accounts?

People who actually pay for a subscription to up2date get preffered access to it. So, when the servers are busy, the demo users (non-paying people) get shut out until the system load lightens up. This is to gurantee the subscription payers reasonable transer rates.
