    Do you have a direct download link for the server side update ?

  2. Jorge says:

    Don’t find link and my server does not find the download when click on CHECK FOR UPDATES.

    Any ideas?

    and what about EX470/475? would we be able to obtain such download, or will it be restricted to the new versions? I hope anyone may come out with the direct download link, test it, and let us know if there’s anything that the good old EX470/475 can’t do with it.

    I’m looking for the EX48x SERVER update, anyone ?

  5. The 2.5 update is explicitly designed for EX-485/EX-487 models.
    Rumors suggest that HP is working on getting some functionality found on the 2nd gen MSS onto the 1st gen EX-470/EX-475. Let us hope so
