[netCDF #ZQW-177600]: Accessing NetCDF variable sections using a command over the Net using OpenDAP

Hi Peter,

The error looks like what you would get if the service was not allowed in the 
content/thredds/threddsConfig.xml file. Do you have "allow", "dir", "scour", 
and "maxAge" elements in your "NetcdfSubsetService" element?

Are you seeing anything in your content/thredds/logs/threddsServlet.log file?

That should be it. Just the service element and allowing ncss in

Not sure I'm understanding this question. Once allowed, the service can be used 
anywhere. Which datasets are actually available through that service depends on 
what datasets reference the appropriate service element.

Another thought ... What kinds of datasets are you trying to serve with NCSS? 
Looks like they are netCDF files. One of the requirements for this particular 
service is that the datasets be recognized by the netCDF-Java library as 
gridded data. You can check this with the NetCDF-Java ToolsUI (which you can 
find from the netCDF-Java page, 
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf-java/) . Just try to open the 
dataset in the "Feature Types" - "Grids" tab.)
