The sequence number is not used to compute the checksum for the products that are part of our Internet Data Distribution (IDD) system. I've just been told, however, that you use the ingest system from Planetary Data. We don't know how the checksums for data products from that system are computed. > Bob Regards, Steve Emmerson Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: TUN-623089 Department: Support LDM Priority: Normal Status: Closed
