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, for web activities, and for file transfer protocol activities.

Those who access the NGS Internet server by I.P. address, however, should now use instead of . 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.
