OK, thanks.  I do work on a number of weekends in situations like this.
The net is likely to be less congested, so remote logins are usually
less painful.

I have seen some strange things with the name/IP address correspondence
in my attempts to get to your machine.

I am finally able to ping this machine through the IP address, but I can
not successfully telnet to it.  To be specific, the following work:

telnet 25

but the following does not work:


Can you verify with your system administrator that I should be able to
telnet to  The fact that I can telnet to the sendmail
port (25) shows that getting to your machine is not always a problem.
The fact that a simple telnet won't complete indicates that telnet
may not be enabled to the 105 IP address.

I am sorry that this is taking so much time and effort.  As soon as I
can login, I should be able to build and install McIDAS in a couple
of hours.

>See ya !!

Talk to you soon...
