Below, you can read about where to get help, what you can do yourself, and who is eligible for help with SDN.
What can you do yourself?
It is a good idea for any users experiencing problems with SDN to carry out troubleshooting locally and with the assistance of their local IT department/technical support.
This is because errors in the SDN connection can occur at various points, as various parties are involved in the operational responsibility for SDN overall:
- The local IT installation for the user, e.g. at a hospital
- SDN service providers – e.g. Sundhedsdatastyrelsen (the Danish health data authority) for FMK and NSP
- The SDN hub provider
We have put together some tools to help with troubleshooting:
- The central SDN operating status can be found here (Smokeping)
- Operating status for SDN connections and services can be found here (Smokeping)
To see whether you have access to SDN, you can attempt to access:
- www-test.netic.medcom or
- www-test.netic.dsdn.dk eller
- Directly at the IP address 220.127.116.11.
If you have access to SDN, you can use the above to see which SDN address you are coming from. This can be useful if you need to ensure you have the correct IP address for the service you are trying to access.
It is also possible to ping or trace services on SDN. It may help you to assess whether the service you are trying to access is available, or if it is your connection that is inaccessible.
If the local IT department/technical support cannot identify the error and solve the problem, please contact your SDN provider.
For example, it may be a matter of troubleshooting at and issues with:
- Link/connection to SDN
- Router configurations
- The SDN agreement system
You can contact your SDN provider via:
Telephone (+45) 7777 0999

Please quote reference “SDN” in any technical support matters.
