Cannot download the evaluation copy of Server 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Apologies if this is in the wrong place but I don't know where else to put it.

    I am trying to download an evaluation copy of Server 2012 R2 from the TechNet Evaluation Center.  I have tried both ISO and VHD forms but am getting the error below (that shown is for VHD) and so have not been able to access the software.

    Server Error in '/en-us/evalcenter/wizards' Application.

    The remote name could not be resolved: 'emailinterchangeapi.trafficmanager.net'

    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
