wget error authentication

wget error authentication

Postby iandroulidakis » Wed Apr 21, 2021 8:15 am


I use:

wget --user=USERNAME --ask-password -r -nc -np -nH -d -A "*.nc" "https://podaac-tools.jpl.nasa.gov/drive/files/allData/ghrsst/data/GDS2/L4/GLOB/JPL/MUR/v4.1/2017"

And I get:

Username/Password Authentication Failed

I am sure that my credentials are correct (I use the exact same to access my account)

Your Drive password is different from the Earthdata login password.

Please click on the Drive API Credentials link to find the Drive API password.

The required API Credential or webdav password can be found here: https://podaac-tools.jpl.nasa.gov/drive/

To view an example, please visit PO.DAAC Drive Forum: viewtopic.php?f=75&t=502


Please let us know if this works.
