ISSUES

NWWS POTENTIAL ISSUES as of 11/2015


Here are the top 5-reasons there may be an authentication failure;

  • User_id or Password is incorrect; these are case sensitive.
  • Firewall(s) have not been adjusted.
  • Port assignment is not "5223"
  • Router was not configured properly
  • Not connecting to nwws-oi.weather.gov

If after checking the above you still have an issue, use the NWWS Help e-mail (nwws.help@noaa.gov) to describe the error code you are still receiving (or problem) and we will try to assist.

Remember: Only one (1) program on one (1) computer can use the assigned user_id and password to log into the NWWS Open Interface (OI).
Anything else will crash your system(s).

End User Client (EUC) Issues

  • If your system is running slower than usual or appears frozen; multiple copies of the EUC may be open.
    Close all EUC windows and restart.
  • Wrong bit rate (32 or 64) software program is used (NWWS End User Client specific).
