  • UCSC genome browser download

    Hi,

    I am trying to download parts of the UCSC genome browser to create a local copy. I a following instructions here:

    http://enotacoes.wordpress.com/2009/...aunty-64-bits/

    But I keep hitting this error:

    n# rsync -avzP rsync://hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu/htdocs/ /var/www/genomebrowser/
    rsync: getaddrinfo: hgdownload.cse.ucsc.edu 873: Name or service not known
    rsync error: error in socket IO (code 10) at clientserver.c(122) [Receiver=3.0.7]


    I get the same error from the UCSC mirror sites too.

    I am probably missing something very basic, much appreciated if someone can point it out!

    --Ashwatha,

    Are you behind a firewall? Does the firewall config allow rsync for other sites?

      I found this link.

      It may be that you have an old version of rsync.

        Genomax and kwatts59: Thanks for the responses. I am indeed behind a firewall, and this seems to be the problem. I have asked my network admin to let me rsync to other sites. I will try after the firewall restriction is removed.

        thanks,
        Ashwatha.
