Hi Melanie,

If you want to setup your machine(s) to be able to provide data to
users outside of the domain your server is on, then you would need to
generate a list of sites you want to allow and then get a list of
machine names and their corresponding IP addresses.  You may not want
to open your machines in this way, but I would request that you allow
all machines from the unidata.ucar.edu domain (128.117.140.) in the
same way that port 388 should be open for the LDM.  If your firewall
administrator refuses to do this, then please add the following three
Unidata machines at a minimum:

zero.unidata.ucar.edu  (Solaris SPARC)
emo.unidata.ucar.edu  (FreeBSD)
imogene.unidata.ucar.edu  (RedHat Linux)

As to your own machines, I would have him/her allow all machines from
your subnet(s).  This would allow you to load McIDAS on any machine and
be able to access the remote server on your ADDE remote server.

Finally, to access the cooperating community servers that are out
there, you will need to allow:


It seems to me that your firewall should be setup to only limit inbound
connections, not outbound ones.  With a setup like this, you would be
able to access any machine out there that has data that you want to
look at.  One that we used the last day of the workshop (which you
missed :-) was:


This contains Wisconsin fly over data from the MODIS instrument on the
Aqua polar orbiter.  It was very interesting to play with.

>Thank you!

No worries.
