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 184.108.40.206 instead of 220.127.116.11 . 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.
