Hi Christian,

>Is it possible to select only a subset of CONDUIT data to be received 
>(to preserve the bandwidth and to just select what we need from 

Yes, it is no different from any other IDD feed in this respect.
The global GFS data dominates the current stream in terms of volume.
This probably will change as the higher resolution (0.5 degree) GFS
data is made available at the end of this week.  The reason I
made a comment about bandwidth is that it is my experience that
users of the IDD typically request everything at first and sometimes
revisit their ldmd.conf request lines to trim down the amount of 
data that they receive.

Excellent!  I am glad to hear of the improvement in your networking

Sounds good.

>Thanks for you help,

No worries.
