[IDD #TAK-151063]: Feedsite request -- lightning data

> Hi Jeff,

> DNS server =  --  geo.brown.edu
> feedtype = LIGHTNING  (or)  FT14
> Also, I do plan to use LDM in the Mac environment, but it's unix, so

> One last question:  you mention that it's a 'push' system, and I'm worried

Hi Baird, 

Yes, David indicated that the host MUST resolve to a .edu domain. You initiate 
the transaction by having your requested feedtype and upstream feed host 
configured in your ldmd.conf file, and as long as the LDM is running, you will 
continue to get data as you have requested and the data becomes available. The 
LDM needs to have port 388 open for TCP/IP access to our set of machines 
*.unidata.ucar.edu and any systems that you request data from. Let us know when 
your LDM is up and running and we will do an "ldmping" to see if we see you :)
