Security Updates

Is anybody else having trouble downloading security updates from SUSE'S server?
The process is painfully slow then stops completely..............
Have had no problems downloading E-mail and web pages so this makes me think the problem is their end.I am using Yast as usual.
Any feedback would be gratefully received.

As you say stasik,aborting the process and going back later seems to work eventually.
Maybe just too many people trying to access the server..........
Thanks for coming back to me on this stasik.
