Hi, I can't upload file using FTP. I can not log in to the FTP server at ftp://usegalaxy.org either. I followed the link: https://galaxyproject.org/ftp-upload/ using filezilla in windows 10. Below is what filezilla tells me:

Hi Jen,

Thank you for your quick response. I read the above prior posts and tried all the things mentioned in these posts. Still can not connect to your server.

Could you check to see if there is anything that can be improved at your end? Otherwise, is there any alternative way to upload big files?

Thank you again.

Did you try this method https://galaxyproject.org/ftp-upload/#upload-with-lftp-command-line?

You can also set up a site-specific server to usegalaxy.org within Filezilla. That is a bit more complicated but covered in the video at the same FAQ above.

If you still have trouble after that, then there could be a firewall problem. Check with your local admins, they might need to tune which sites they block. If they need help/context, have them report the problem at Gitter and ask for a how-to (ports and other technical details). This usually takes some back-n-forth to resolve so a real-time chat with the developers is faster/better. https://gitter.im/galaxyproject/Lobby

I should note that when this is reported, it is almost always from people using Filezilla on Windows. One or more settings is not correct and gets fixed (can vary) and/or setting up a site instead of using all defaults tends to resolve the problem. So, the line-command method, setting up a site in Filezilla, or test out a different FTP client are all worth a try, before checking for firewall issues with your admins. If line-command fails, then you know the issue is with a firewall.

Thank you for your quick response.

I contacted our institution's IT department. They checked the firewall and saw nothing was blocked.

I tried the command-line option and still can not connect. The whole session is copied and pasted below. The last four sentences tell the reason. Since I am new to this field, would you please help me figure out the specific reason that I failed?

Thank you.

Usegalaxy.org has FTPS enabled. That means you'll need to use one of these two commands to connect line-command. Please give it a try instead, it looks like you are just using ftp with no user (-u) specified.

For explicit FTPS:

$ lftp -u user@email.edu usegalaxy.org

For implicit FTPS:

$ lftp -u user@email.edu ftps://usegalaxy.org

For reference, I am on a PC, not Mac/Unix.The provided commands appeared to be for Mac.

Also, the server asked for user once it established a connection. After I entered the username and pressed return, I got the failure message. It even didn't ask for password.

I have tried Filezilla and WINSCP. Both return an error from the server, for example: WINSCP says "access denied".

I also tried to log onto fttp://usefalaxy.org using google chrome, but got no response from the website.

I am certain for all the cases the correct account name and password have been supplied.

Is it possible that my account doesn't have the permission to use ftp? Or for some reason, your server is rejecting clients?

Please advise.

How large are the files you are trying to upload? With the changes in the latest Galaxy release 18.05 you should be able to upload many gigabytes directly at https://usegalaxy.org using your browser. That might save you the headache of troubleshooting something we are not able to reproduce.

That should work with Upload now. Please give it a try. How long the Upload takes will depend on the speed of your internet connection. We think that you shouldn't switch histories while this is going on, so plan it so that won't be a problem.

The alternative is to uninstall/reinstall Filezilla and use all of the defaults (don't change any settings). FTP is a distinct process and can run in the background without impacting the Galaxy GUI. Be sure to watch the load and reconnect, resume, then reaccept the security certificate as needed. Slower upload connection speeds can lead to broken connections. This is just how FTP works, it is not a Galaxy issue.

Hope one of these works out for you!

Open a new tab with Galaxy and work there, leaving the large upload in its own tab that you don't use until finished.
