Hi there, Hope the message gets to you. I'm in need of a huge favor.  I have an old J2320 that is still running on R9.1R1.8 (please don't laugh). Getting the newer software is a pain and I was hoping you may be able to assist by taking a snapshot of your latest software and dump it to a removable CF that I will be providing. Please do not point me to JTAC's website to download the sw since I do not have a valid contract with them.

Thank you so much in advance,
