Hi Gary,

OK, sounds good!

>The port

It is not necessary to open port 388 for UDP traffic, so you may want
to ask your network folks to close that down.  TCP for port 388 must
be open, however.

>If you can think of anything else we need to do, please let me know.

If your machine is secure, then the next step is creation of an 'ldm'
account, downloading of the LDM distribution, building the
distribution, installing the distribution, and finally configuring data
requests in ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf and data decoding actions in
~ldm/etc/pqact.conf.

>Thanks again for your help!

No worries.

Cheers,

Tom
