Couldn't access arlftp server

Post by mc2128 » January 5th, 2015, 12:02 am

Hello,
I'm trying to download HYSPLIT formatted NOAA reanalysis data from ftp://arlftp.arlhq.noaa.gov/pub/archives/reanalysis
but I couldn't access the ftp server. It just showed connection timed out.
I can enter ftp://ftpprd.ncep.noaa.gov/ here, but not ftp://arlftp.arlhq.noaa.gov/pub/archives/reanalysis.
What is the problem?

Thanks

The server is currently unavailable. We are looking to see what the problem is. Check back later.

It's seems down again. I can't access to data neither via Hysplit desktop version nor via web.

It is working today. Not sure why you had problems yesterday.

Yeah, I can see. Thank you. But I can't still solve the issue regarding Hysplit for desktop version. Everytime I try to download a meteorological data, Hysplit shows me this warning message: "FTP failed: arlftp.arlhp.noaa.gov ->pub/archives/reanalysis/*****.gbl". So I've tried to change the FTP server, without any positive response. Any hint? Thanks.

It is possible that your PC firewall is blocking the FTP software that the HYSPLIT GUI is using from being able to connect to our server. Try giving the FTP client (ftp.exe) privileges in your firewall. If that still fails, try downloading the latest version of PC HYSPLIT and install it over top of your current version.
