Robert,

>Institution: Research
>Package Version: 6.0.14
>Operating System: Redhat 9.0
>Hardware Information: Intel PII 500Mhz, 256MB RAM, 80GB HDD, 4Mbps Connection

>Inquiry: I ran "nmap" to test port 388 for the LDM machine, and it reports
>port 388 as being filtered. I tried running nmap on other university LDM
>hosts, and some come back as "open", while others come back as "filtered".

As long as traffic can flow bidirectoinally through port 388, the LDM
will work.

Are you giving us the IP of your LDM machine for a particular reason?
If you are feeding from a Unidata university LDM, you will need to inform
them of your name/IP change.  Also, both forward and reverse name
lookup needs to work before the LDM can operate like it designed to.

>Thanks!
