[IDV #BYS-121681]: Adding catalog (RAMADDA-served local file system) fails



Greetings Dave!

If you want to know the URL of a particular datasets catalog, surf
to the dataset via your browser and, when you get to the location
you desire, click the "Connect->THREDDS" RAMADDA menu link in 
the browser (not the IDV) and that will show you a "view" of the 
dataset as a THREDDS catalog.

Cheers!

Sean
