Hi Yuan,

I am running this on a Win2k laptop and am not aware of another DODS
netCDF server for this platform.  I was lead to believe that the 
dodsC AS would perform the function of a DODS netCDF server.
Is this not true?  How can I serve netCDF files through DODS from
my laptop?

This is important for taking this technology on the road for
presentations at workshops and conferences.

Regarding confusion, I admit that I am confused by the examples
presented at:

 
http://my.unidata.ucar.edu/content/projects/THREDDS/tech/dodsAS/AggServerConfig.html

Example 6 suggests that the AS can serve local netCDF files as
DODS data sets.  (Replacing the "..." at the beginning of this XML
snippet with actual tags would be helpful.  Also, it'd be nice
to be more explicit about the differences between examples 3 and 6.)
