I am trying to download some data from the UniProtKB website. I have a Ubuntu 16.04.2 VM hosted on Azure.

The main repository is hosted here. I want to download one of the .gz files, but when I use wget (wget "pathtofile") I have the following error:

wget: unable to resolve host address ‘ftp.uniprot.org’

I have tried the same thing with a clone of the UniProt DB that is here, and it works fine for download. Is this an issue with UniProt? The same issue happens with ftp and scp.

Looks like the DNS on your azure VM is not correctly setup. Take a look at the network configuration to see if you are missing DNS server entries or are using incorrect ones.
