In addition to what Jon has stated, if you want to serve a remote dataset
via WMS through your TDS, the owner of the remote dataset must enable
allowRemote on their TDS WMS. Although you have made that setting to your
own TDS, this only controls the remote access of your own datasets not of
those external to your TDS. I know this is possible, because I do a similar
thing serving out satellite data via WMS from an external source (NOAA
PIFSC). Hope that helps.
