Hi Juergen.

I did as you told. Still no luck. For example I try to add the
Bundeslaendernamen layer and I get:

Could not draw Germany because:

Request contains a SRS not offered by the server for one or more of the
Layers in the request.

The WMS vendor also reported: 

msWMSLoadGetMapParams(): WMS server error. Unsupported SRS namespace
(only EPSG and AUTO currently supported).

This is probably due to a bug in the QGIS program. Please report this

Kind regards, Nikos
