Accessing the Data via ADDE

Once the SDI begins to ingest data and is connected to the network, the data can be accessed on workstations running McIDAS via ADDE. The ADDE group name, by default, is POES. Perform the Changing Server Dataset Names procedure if you want to change it.

Perform these steps to access the SDI's data.

1. From a McIDAS workstation:


For example, if the SDI has an IP address of


2. Use the ADDE command named DSINFO to list the descriptor names.


The output should look something like:

Dataset Names of Type: IMAGE in Group: POES

DSINFO -- done

At this point the suite of ADDE commands can be used with the data.
