Re: DIFAX ftp site


We haven't had any problems getting difax images.

However, we don't use the NWS ftp site, but use their web site in a similar fashion to 
download the products via "lynx" on one of our unix boxes. For example, the 
following line:

 /usr/local/bin/lynx -source ""; > 

basically does the same thing as an ftp transfer (although not quite as fast).

Good day all,

IS anyone else using the NWS ftp site for DIFAX downloads? If so are you having 
problems getting data? If not can we speak so I can fix the problems we are 
having here?
