The EUMETSAT server is restricted and you need to have an account to log in.   
We provide it in the list as a convenience to those IDV users who do have 
accounts.  These accounts are not available to the general IDV community 
though.  Meteosat data has restrictions on it's use and realtime availability.

You can access some Meteosat imagery from the satepsanone.nesdis.noaa.gov 
server in the PUB dataset.  Look at the Image Types that begin with MEGLOB.
