I am happy to help you out though my network skills are near nil. The place 
to start for general information on Access Grid is www.accessgrid.org

 From there you can find more than you ever want to know but the links 
below may be useful.
Also the AG community <ag-tech at mcs.anl.gov> is quite supportive of new 
users getting their sites enabled.
Bill Nickless <nickless at mcs.anl.gov> of ANL is a particularly useful 
resource for network issues.

I'm having trouble with multicast.
Abilene has a multicast cookbook available here.
Bill Nickless has put together some notes on wide-area multicast here.
Other resources include
Cisco multicast web pages
Internet2 multicast working group
NCNE, the National Center for Network Engineering at Pittsburgh 
Supercomputer Center,   webpages


Give me a holler whenever. I'm still trying to work out whether I can make 
it down to CHL during that time.
