Download meteorological datasets from command line

Post by lagom » January 25th, 2016, 7:26 am

Hi,

I'm an Hysplit newbie, up to now I downloaded meteorological datasets from the ARL ftp server using the GUI on my computer.
Now I need to download them on a cluster, without a GUI but from the linux command line.
Some questions:

1) Should I ask for a further permission to download on this cluster?

2) Is it correct to use the following ftp command to establish the connection?

ftp> open arlftp.arlhq.noaa.gov

and then using 'anonymous' as username?
and what about the password? Can I use the FTP password that I found in the GUI?

I apologize for possible trivial questions.

Thank you in advance!

Yes, you can use the LINUX ftp command with the user as anonymous and the password is your email address.
