Default UCSC genome browser download


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

But I keep hitting this error:

n# rsync -avzP rsync:// /var/www/genomebrowser/
rsync: getaddrinfo: 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!

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.
