This ticket derives from #3929, where after fixing that problem, another appeared.
Qgis is unable to view WMS data from
The problem appears to be with the wms server sending inconsistent srs and bounding box information in response to a GetCapabilities request (the boundingbox values, which should be in lat/long, are in some other coordinate system). However, since mapserver appears to work fine (see one of the comments in #3929), there may be a way to work around the problem with nztopo.
The WMS getcapabilities request is:
A portion from the rely to that request is:
<Layer queryable="1"> <Name>182</Name> <Title>DEM (15m)</Title> <SRS>EPSG:4326</SRS> <LatLonBoundingBox minx="1970006.456038" miny="5290004.86525579" maxx="3010006.19505419" maxy="6790036.81876791"/> <ScaleHint min="3.74121581576496" max="28.059118618237267"/> </Layer>
Note the LatLonBoundingBox attribute with min and max values that are clearly not latitude/longitudes.

The problem in this ticket is with the response from the nztopo-online server, not qgis. I'm removing the Milestone tag from it as the solution is beyond the control of qgis, but leaving the ticket open to serve as a note of a problem that needs to be resolved somehow.
