Hello, all. I haven't been able to access the subject's website for 2
weeks now. Assuming the problem isn't on my end why would a major
supplier of test equipment allow this? Thanks for any insight. Sincerely,

Try this test site:

If it works there then the problem is at your end...

Thanks for responding, John. The URL you supplied indicated that the
R&S site was up. I've been using a VPN and when I disconnected from the
VPN I was able to log on to the R&S website at www.rohde-schwarz.com.
Now I have to find out the reason for the VPN's discrimination.

It's probably R&S doing the discriminating. To log in to Digikey via
PrivateInternetAccess I have to use an exit node in France. Canada used
to work, but DK turned that off as well.

Cheers
