Hi Tonie, I have checked the route to your machine from here, and it does not get to green.ecgs.lu in a very timely manner, It is so slow, I am not confident that the passing of large products (i.e. CONDUIT model output) will be feasible. I am also not aware of what restrictions for re-distribution of ECMWF within Europe may exist, but I believe it may be an issue (the data is propriatary) Below are the results of a traceroute from UCAR to your location, the hops after 17 I suspect are internal, and behind a firewall, as they do not resolve. Perhaps if green.ecgs was closer to the firewall it may create a difference in trace time. The time to router.ecgs.lu (220.127.116.11) is feasible...
