Yes I did read the VPN document before posting to the group but it does not give any IP address information and the e-mail address within the document is bouncing.

yea, I was really referring to the ATC part of the FAA I suppose...
I'm not sure it's still true, but every time I hear it come up in conversation (I bet owen delong would actually know...or rs) there is a bit of:
 "Well, we could migrate to something NOT VT based, but that'd take 3+ years and ... we have other priorities and ... "

wash/rinse/repeat... On a serious note though:

<http://www.fly.faa.gov/ASDI/asdi.html>
(note this is the first hit in google searches for 'adsi server faa') seems to have all manner of information on it about the systems in question. They seem to mention VPN services, I suspect there isn't v6 access, I would have read the requirements doc, but they wanted to send it to me as a .doc file... uhm, this is the 21st century could we distribute this in some sort of cross-platform manner? like txt ? or pdf? (though I hesitate to suggest pdf, what with the adobe pwnage consistently ongoing these days)
