Hi,

I have just launched a new cluster using cloudman

I'd like to upload a new custom genome and some previously published transcriptomic data for it.

I'm trying to use FTP to upload the data but everytime I get this response (both using my ftp gui client and mac os x command line)

 

"530 This FTP server is anonymous only."

Is there additional configuration I have to do to make the FTP work out of the box?  All that I've read so far seems to suggest that it should just work out of the box.

Thanks!

I can confirm this is a bug -- you're not doing anything wrong.  I'll reply with a solution shortly.

Fixed thanks!! 

One comment though, it will only works with active transfer (both my command line ftp and FileZilla are set to passive by default and have to be manually set to active).

Would it make sense to open the ports for passive (not sure what range proftpd is set to)? I'm not a security guy, but is there any reason why not opening it?

This will be fixed in the next Cloudman release, but for right now here are some steps you can follow to get it working on your instance right now:

 

1) SSH to the instance `ssh -i your_keypair.pem ubuntu@<your_instance>`  (or, if you set a cloudman administrative password, you can use that instead of the keypair)

 (stay as the 'ubuntu' user for all of these commands) 

2) `sudo apt-get remove vsftpd`

3) `sudo ln -s /usr/proftpd /mnt/galaxy/tools/proftpd`

4) `sudo /etc/init.d/proftpd start`

 

And you should be immediately able to connect via FTP with your galaxy email/password.

Thanks!  This worked for me.

Hello,

This should be functional, but it does require some set-up when the instance is first initialized. The first item to check is that the inbound connections are set up, as described in step #6 on this wiki:

Thanks for your reply.  I used the interface (https://usegalaxy.org/cloudlaunch) to automatically launch my cloudman, so those settings were all there already.

It says "Anonymouse FTP only," so it seems to be a settings issue rather than a ports issue?

Right, Cloudlaunch sets this up for you. Dannon (one of the Cloudman developers) uncovered the root issue. Glad the current workaround is helping.
