Any help with this...

    Can you provide the URL for the WMS server that you are trying to connect to? That error usually means there is a problem with the URL provided.

    Thanks,

    What version of Global Mapper are you using? In v11.02 I used 'http://wms.globexplorer.com/gexservlets/wms' as the Server URL and 'WMS' as the Service Name and it worked fine for me to get the capabilities and select a source, but I got an error actually downloading imagery.

    I would not expect the GlobeXplorer server to allow anyway to access the data. That is the same service that the DigitalGlobe imagery in Global Mapper comes through, so you should be able to obtain the same imagery using the DigitalGlobe source in Global Mapper.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
