20050127: wavelet decompression ADDE server code

Hi Tom,

The McIDAS GRID server can works with data converted from GRIB (not
GRIB2) to McIDAS GRID format.  The decoders are included in Unidata
McIDAS-X as the XCD component, and also in the gribdec.tar.Z bundle
that can be found in the unix/gribdec directory of passworded
ftp for the Unidata McIDAS distribution.

This could be due to firewall issues or to you not having setup/setup
completely the remote ADDE server:

<as 'mcidas'>
create the .mcenv file in ~mcidas (as per web page instructions)
make sure that the compress and uncompress applications can be found
in the PATH in .mcenv (if using 'compress' compressed access; the
current recommendation is to use 'gzip' compressed data transfers
set by the end user defining MCCOMPRESS to be GZIP before running
his/her McIDAS session)

<as 'root'>

create the user 'mcadde' and make it have the same HOME directory
as the user 'mcidas' but have no login shell

cd ~mcidas
sh ./mcinet2004.sh install mcadde

If remote access still doesn't work, it most likely means that
access (to ports 112, 500, and or 503) is blocked through a firewall;
that there is an error in ~mcidas/.mcenv; that the ~mcidas directory
is not readable/writable by the user 'mcadde'; and/or that the user 'mcadde'
is not in the same group as 'mcidas'.

>Btw, do you have any news on the wavelet compression issue?

Not yet, sorry.


I will not be in the office today or tomorrow.  I will be checking email
on Saturday when I return home.

Thanks for the swift reply. I'll try per your instructions to get the
ADDE server issues solved. I cannot be a firewall issue because I'm
within the LAN.
