Hi Luis,

Sorry to have taken so long to respond to this note...

Immediately after getting your email, I ran a couple of connectivity tests
to this machine, and I was greatly encouraged by what I found.  It looks
as though you will be able to ingest just about anything in the IDD that
you want and not be limited by your network connection!

OK.  It is always interesting to know exactly where machines are housed.

Excellent.  I will get another Unidata staff member involved in identifying
primary and failover feeds sites for you.

>Please, let us know if additional information is needed.

thanks for the note.

We are ready to start receiving the real-time data from the primary and 
failover feed sites.
I assume that Jeff Weber will provide the specific information on these 

We appreciate your assistance and will let you know how things go for us!
