NGS Internet Server has New IP Address 03.28.2002

March 28, 2002
The National Geodetic Survey (NGS) has installed a new computer for its Internet server.

The new server may be accessed by the same name as the old server; that is, www.ngs.noaa.gov for web activities, and ftp.ngs.noaa.gov for file transfer protocol activities.

Those who access the NGS Internet server by I.P. address, however, should now use 205.156.4.133 instead of 205.156.4.134 . Both I.P. addresses will be maintained at least until April 3, 2002.

NGS recommends the use of the server's name, as opposed to its I.P. address, to avoid having to cope with any future changes in the I.P. address.
