I have uploaded data via FTP many times in the past, using FileZilla. I went to connect to the host (upload.galaxytrakr.org), and it had a ECONNREFUSED error. I had my IT department look at firewall settings and I got this response:
I still haven’t been able to get it working. I’m sorry but we don’t think there’s much we can do at this point.
We confirmed that Filezilla itself is working on campus by using usegalaxy.org. Also tried upload.galaxytrakr.org from a computer off campus that doesn’t have our firewall and setting, it still didn’t work.
Found this documentation that seems to be the “right” way to configure this, but this doesn’t work either.
