How to verify functionality for Bing Maps within MapInfo Pro

Products affected: MapInfo Pro™
Here are the URL's used by the Bing Maps Tile Servers in case they need to be "white listed" to allow access through a firewall:
 

http://ecn.t1.tiles.virtualearth.net/

http://ecn.t2.tiles.virtualearth.net/

http://ecn.t3.tiles.virtualearth.net/

http://ecn.t4.tiles.virtualearth.net/

http://virtualearth.net

Please ensure that all traffic to and from virtualearth.net is permitted through the firewall


Here are some steps to test functionality

Try to access the two URLs below in a web browser:
http://ecn.t3.tiles.virtualearth.net/ - should return an Access Denied error
http://ecn.t3.tiles.virtualearth.net/tiles/a00.jpg?g=392 - should return a sample tile


If a proxy server is installed are the proper credentials being supplied?
Do the tiles load if the timeout values are increased via Pro>Options>Web Services?
Has a Bing License key been entered within MapInfo Pro at Pro>Licensing>Bing Licensing Key? If so, try clearing that key and testing.
