Default Trouble downloading Resource Bundle from Broad Institute

Sorry all for being so inexperienced, but I am at a loss for how to download the Resource Bundle from Broad's FTP site. I see this on the Broad's website,

Inside of the Broad, the latest bundle will always be available in:


with a subdirectory containing for each reference sequence and associated data files.

External users can download these files (or corresponding .gz versions) from the GSA FTP Server in the directory bundle. Gzipped files should be unzipped before attempting to use them. Note that there is no "current link" on the FTP; users should download the highest numbered directory under current (this is the most recent data set)
along with the following:


username: gsapubftp-anonymous
password: <blank>
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since you are not on broad campus you can't use the first method to download the bundle.

You could use any ftp program of your choice with the information you quoted in the second quote above to download the program.

or use this link

If a password prompt window pops up next just hit enter. The "bundle" directory will be on the page that shows up next.
