I'm sorry to hear this.

At this point, the downstream LDM on the ground is doing all that it can
to obtain the correct IP address for the given hostname on the plane.
The lack of error messages indicates that the downstream LDM on the
ground is timing-out in its attempts to contact the upstream LDM on the
plane.  You should be able to see this by starting the LDM on the ground
in verbose mode via the "-v" option to ldmadmin(1) -- alternatively, you
can send a running downstream LDM process a USR2 signal to put it into
verbose mode.

I wish I could tell you something encouraging, but the network (not the
LDM) just isn't playing nice.

Tom, you got any ideas?
