[LDM #HHK-349534]: LDM data feed down


We just verified that one of our real server backend machines for the
idd.unidata.ucar.edu cluster is denying a connection attempt from:

and this has happened 4 times:

20170724T185301.068471Z ldmd[4447] NOTE ldmd.c:637:handle_connection() Denying 
connection from "" because not allowed

The IP address does not resolve to a fully qualified name:

% nslookup

** server can't find NXDOMAIN


- was there a change in the network setup at UKy that is now trying to
  proxy the LDM connection attempt using

  I ask because the IP addresses of your two machines are similar:


A 'notifyme' to weather.uky.edu shows that the last data product it received
had a time stamp of 160308.868706:

Where there any changes made to the network setup at UKy around 16 UTC?

We too are unable to contact the machines (weather, weather2 and weather3)
at NIU.  We are also not able to SSH to any of these machines like we have
in the past.  It is entirely possible that these machines are no longer
functioning as IDD relays.  Gilbert Sebenste sent a note to the ldm-users
email list a couple of months ago warning that this might happen because
of budget cuts in Illinois.

Given the uncertainty of NIU continuing to act as your IDD upstream feeder,
we suggest you change your ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf REQUEST lines to request
the feeds from some other site(s).  This is why I asked you to check
to see if there are active ALLOWs for your machines on:


Did you check those machines as I asked in a previous email?  If yes,
what were the results?
