Choose uncompressed and then start the session After you have started a session _not_ using compressed transfers, you can reissue the command that failed: IMGLIST GINIWEST/GW1KVIS Image file directory listing for:GINIWEST/GW1KVIS IMGLIST: cannot chdir to /home/mcadde/mcidas/data: No such file or directory IMGLIST: done IMGLIST failed, RC=2 Now, we can read the informational error message. It seems that you have the HOME directory for the user that runs ADDE set to be /home/mcadde. My recommendation is for the HOME directory of 'mcadde' to be the same as for 'mcidas'. When this is the case, you should not get the above error since the directory /home/mcidas/mcidas/data is created when mcinstall is run to unpack the Unidata McIDAS distributions. So, I recommend changing the HOME directory for 'mcadde' (if I remember correctly, you use NIS/NIS+) and make sure that 'mcadde' has read/write/ execute privilege in the ~mcidas directory tree. Please let me know if this doesn't correct the problem you report. Tom
