[IDV #ALK-565490]: IDV - failure to connect to catalog from IDV

Hi David,

> From a web browser, I point to my catalog (attached as catalog.xml) with:

When you point your browser at the above URL (ending in ".xml") you see an XML 
file, correct? Do you then change the ".xml" to ".html" to browse down to the 
"OPeNDAP Dataset Access Form"?

Did you download the attached catalog.xml file from the URL above? Or attach it 
from the local file? It has datasetScan elements in it which should be in the 
file on disk but should be converted to catalogRef elements when viewed through 
the above URL. 

> When I use this same url (http://uaedev-viz:8080/thredds/catalog.xml) in

I just opened the attached catalog.xml file in IDV and didn't get an error. 
Though it also didn't display any contents.

Can I get to your server from outside the UCAR firewall? Is it accessible from 
inside the UCAR firewall? I think this would (maybe?) be much easier to figure 
out if I could access your server.
