If you want to download an OSS note onto your SAP system it is a very simple process using transaction SNOTE. First, check if the note exists on your system i.e. see the following example using Note 379269 for how to do this.
Then to download the note you simply execute tcode SNOTE and click on the download note button, enter the note number and it will then be downloaded, assuming you have a valid remote connection to SAP OSS.
Alternatively, if the note already exists on your system and you want to ensure you have the latest version simply click on the download latest version icon and enter the note number.
Anyway here are the simple steps including screenshots of each one:
Step 1 – Execute transaction SNOTE
