This is only a temporary issue caused by changes made by NOAA to the server address. There is a workaround to solve it. In fact, we have created a new TAITUS address which redirects to the NOAA server in case they make new changes.

Do as follows:

(1) In “Edit / Properties / 3D engine  /Meteo / Forecast server” change the address to:

http://clouds.taitussoftware.com/noaa/{YYYY}/{MM}/{DD}/{HH}/{FHR}

(2) In “Edit / Properties / Swaths /Benchmarking/ Forecast server” change the address to:

http://clouds.taitussoftware.com/noaa/{YYYY}/{MM}/{DD}/{HH}/{FHR}

(3) In “Edit / Properties / Swaths / Qualify” Make sure the Clouds Percent is selected.
