[McIDAS #AZI-502215]: McIDAS-X 2004 Point ADDE problems



Hi Tijn,

re:

I am doing well, thanks.  I hope that you are well also!

Sure...

This looks OK.

Assuming that your SRFOBS dataset is composed of data in MDXX files, then
this should be OK also.

Looks OK.  What is the SCHEMA for the file(s) in question?

The fact that you can list and plot the data seems to say that your ADDE
server setup has no problems (and I don't see any).

I am not sure what you are saying here.  What do you mean by your "local ADDE 
copy"?

It would be very useful if I could get access to  your ADDE server so
I can run tests on this end.  I just tried to do this from my home machine:

DATALOC ADD SRFOBS adde.itc.nl

Group Name                    Server IP Address
--------------------         ----------------------------------------
SRFOBS                       ADDE.ITC.NL

<LOCAL-DATA> indicates that data will be accessed from the local data directory.
DATALOC -- done
 
DSINFO P SRFOBS


The 'DSINFO P SRFOBS' command did not complete before timing out.  This tells
me that either your ADDE server was not running or it was not accessible
because of a firewall configuration (I tried testing access to the ADDE
server on all ports supported in McIDAS-X v2004, 500 (uncompressed), 503
('compress' compressed), and 112 ('gzip' compressed); all attemptes failed).

Can you give me access to your ADDE server so I can access the SRFOBS dataset?

Cheers,

Tom
