[IDD #ICA-648762]: COAMPS and NOGAPS data

Hi Brice,

OK.  I thought that you might have something like this in place.

We can add an appropriate ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf ALLOW for your machine on the
toplevel IDD relay nodes that we maintain.  This will probably be sufficient
for the feed you are after.

Please send us the IP address of your machine so we can set this up.

Follow-up questions:

- will you be willing to report real time stats back to us (via the
  'exec   "rtstats -h rtstats.unidata.ucar.edu" entry in ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf)?

- are you willing to allow one (or more) machines here at Unidata
  in your ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf file so that we would be able to use
  LDM utilities like 'ldmping' and 'notifyme' if/when you need
  help in troubleshooting LDM problems?

  This would require that your firewall allow inbound port 388 traffic
  from our machine(s).

I will be going to the MUG meeting in June.  I will make sure to meet up
with Jeremy while there.
