It actually almost works. This command should be equal to just download the file

grdconvert /vsicurl/http://w3.ualg.pt/~jluis/ftp/tmp/idades_v2012.grd -Glixo.grd

and I get the file. Only the coordinates are wrong but for the rest, the grid is fine.

Is there a way to force reading the grid locally with the HDF5 driver instead of the automatically picked netCDF driver?
