After the requested data have been copied from the CD-ROM jukebox system to a publicly accessible hard disk, the user will be informed by a message to the e-mail address given in the request. Then the data can be copied via anonymous FTP:
% ftp darc.star.le.ac.uk user: anonymous; password: e-mail address ftp> cd rosat/data change to the data main directory ftp> ls list available data directories ftp> cd 700339h go to requested data directory ftp> binary set binary tranfer mode ftp> prompt avoid prompting ftp> mget * get all files in directory ftp> quit exit
You may also request data by sending an e-mail to `firstname.lastname@example.org', specifying the 6-digit ROR number of the observation with a single character appended (`p' for PSPC, `f' for PSPC with filter, `h' for HRI, `w' for WFC), e.g. 7000111p. The system will respond the same way as with the request from `BROWSE'.
To receive data on tape fill in the request form (available from directory rosat on darc.star.le.ac.uk) and send it to LTVAD::RDAC.
