Microsoft Security Compliance Manager WIndows 2008 R2 Baseline

For some reason, the WIndows 2008 R2 baseline fails to download through the Microsoft Security Compliance Manager. It's the only one that fails, and it happens to be the only one that I need. I get an error that it cannot find the network connection; obviously it can for ALL the other ones so network access is not an issue. Does anyone else have this issue? Can I download the Windows 2008 R2 baseline manually?

This was actually resolved by Microsoft. I made no changes; my network was fine. Sounds like that particular file was just inaccessible on the MS site for a time.

This was a MS accessibility issue that was corrected by them.
