Thanks for reporting the problem.

I just tested this and BAMs loaded from Galaxy Main into an IGV local browser successfully.

Would you try again please? It is possible that the server was under heavier load when first attempted.

Update: I just checked with our administrator. This error indicates that there was a problem with Galaxy connecting to your IGV. He thinks that some type of firewall is probably in place on your side. Check with your institution or ISP provider to find out if they can resolve the block.
