20021115: attempts to setup 'mcidas' acct on allegan to route ADDE (cont.)

Hi Paul and Rob,

I logged onto allegan this weekend and experimented with the ADDE
data access information in the 'mcidas' account in an attempt to see
if I could get allegan to route other machine's ADDE requests to remote
hosts.  Unfortunately, I was unsuccessful in getting this to work.  
Apparently, McIDAS code does not allow for ADDE requests to be chained:
a request for, say, GINIWEST data from one of your lab machines to
allegan will only be treated as a request for GINIWEST data as
LOCAL-DATA on allegan.

Since getting allegan to route ADDE requests did not work (rats!),
we will need to think about how requests can be sent to a proxy server
which will then route both outgoing and incoming ADDE traffic.  This
will take some research and likely code development on my part, so
I ask for your patience.

I wish I could have provided better news...

That's right.  I believe that the workstations already point to allegan
for some of the ADDE feeds.  Rob can confirm.

Sure.  I enabled the mcidas login on allegan and allowed access for the
machine gale.unidata.ucar.edu.  I'll send you the passwd directly.

Thanks again for all your help.

thanks for attention to this matter. Such a shame that there is no easy solution
(is it not more often the case?). Hopefully the development to use a proxy will 
not be too onerous - if we can do anything this end please do not hesitate to 

Merci .. Rob
