Hi all,

I still cannot find the reasons why it failed and no solution to solve the problem now.

However, I looked into my previous HYSPLIT runs (2014 version) and found ftp site address is slightly different from the default one (v4.2.0)
ftp://arlftp.arlhq.noaa.gov/archives, and I can see all MET files are there.

I then tried changing the ftp address in the FTP setting, and different combinations of my password on HYSPLIT GUI, but it never works.

I then downloaded the files directly from the ftp site, and it works, I can run the simple trajectories using these files now. I think I can modify Data_ftp.bat to download all the files I need, it should not be a big deal.

I feel like somehow, during the installation FTP package went wrong, I also saw similar posts last year about this FTP failed issue without solution.

Thanks

Joey
