It's not a licensing thing at all. We've actually had some major filesystem problems with the torrent server.
It's not the ideal fix but LXF177 is on Archive.org - https://archive.org/details/cdrom-linux-format
and most of the ISOs, in fact.
We're actually updating/fixing a lot of things on the servers, which has needed doing for a long, long time and I'm sorry it's affecting people's ability to access downloads etc, but we are getting things cleaned up.
