I tried to download some fasta files from ENA today with following code:

cat fq.txt |while read id;
do ascp -QT -l 300m -P33001 -k 1 -v -i /home/tomas/.aspera/connect/etc/asperaweb_id_dsa.openssh era-fasp@${id} . ;
done

One example line in my fq.txt:

fasp.sra.ebi.ac.uk:/vol1/fastq/ERR249/001/ERR2497991/ERR2497991_1.fastq.gz

But it comes with ascp: failed to authenticate.

I'm sure the openssh exists in the path.

My code works well one or two weeks ago. I don't know why this happens. Does anyone know what's the problem?

Thanks.

Same here, probably a server thing at their side. Just wait a few hours and try again, usually errors like this vanish after some time.

I also have the same problem. Did you figure it out?

There is nothing to figure out. Sometimes a server is down, and there is nothing else to do but wait for it to be up again.

Others are noticing that as well: EBI European Nucleotide Archive (ERA) aspera access broken Please create a ticket at EBI/ENA help desk to make them aware of the issue.

I've sent email to ENA support several days ago. For now there is no response. The failure seems to be a server crash on ENA side.

Alternative solution is to download via ftp or SRA.
