Hello,

I am attempting to write code in perl that would allow me to download files from COSMICs SFTP server. I have never done this and I believe that is the major source of my troubles. I have been able to login using HTTP::Request::Common at https://cancer.sanger.ac.uk/cosmic/login, but in terms of accessing the SFTP server I have not had much luck.

My code:

 use strict;
 use warnings;
 use Net::SFTP;

my $SFTPSite = "sftp-cancer.sanger.ac.uk";
my $userid = "username\@email.com";
my $pword = "*********";

my $sftp = Net::SFTP->new( $SFTPSite, $userid, $pword ) or die "Could NOT create SFTP\n";

My error message:

Can't connect to sftp-cancer.sanger.ac.uk, port 22: Connection timed out at /home/jcook/perl5/perlbrew/perls/perl-5.24.0/lib/site_perl/5.24.0/x86_64-linux/Net/SSH/Perl.pm line 215.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Thanks!
