No worries.

OK, sounds good.

Now I understand.  The folks that control the servers you list limit
access to the machines by IP address.  It seems that the machine that
you were accessing these datasets from was allowed, but your machine is

You will need to contact the people that manage the machines above
(most likely the NOAA SATEPS people) and request that they allow your
machine.  For this, I am betting that your machine will need to have
a fixed IP address.

The Unidata community has setup a series of cooperating ADDE servers that
are open to public use, but none of these has the data you are probably
interested in.  In particular, none of these machines has GOES sounder
imagery.  To get an idea of what imagery the servers I am referring to
have, please review the imagery examples in:


If the satellite imagery sectors that are show as examples on this
page are useful for your project, please let me know and I will provide
you with a list of ADDE servers from which you can get the data.

>Thanks a lot.

No worries.
