Dear IntelDevcloud Team

I am trying to download some applications, However, both wget and curl commands are not working.

Earlier I used these commands to download large applications. It saves downloading and installing time. 

uxyz@login-2:~$ wget https://excellmedia.dl.sourceforge.net/project/gnuplot/gnuplot/5.4.0/gnuplot-5.4.0.tar.gz
--2022-06-29 21:41:03--  https://excellmedia.dl.sourceforge.net/project/gnuplot/gnuplot/5.4.0/gnuplot-5.4.0.tar.gz
Resolving excellmedia.dl.sourceforge.net (excellmedia.dl.sourceforge.net)... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address 'excellmedia.dl.sourceforge.net'
uxyz@login-2:~$ curl https://excellmedia.dl.sourceforge.net/project/gnuplot/gnuplot/5.4.0/gnuplot-5.4.0.tar.gz
curl: (6) Could not resolve host: excellmedia.dl.sourceforge.net
uxyz@login-2:~$ Timeout, server home not responding.

Please help me regarding this.

Hi,

 

Thank you for posting in Intel Communities.

 

DevCloud does not allow external website access from the login node. External access is allowed only from compute nodes.


Login node uses a lightweight general-purpose processor. Login nodes should not be used for development or execution of programs. It is an interface node that helps to connect or submit jobs to compute nodes.

 

 You can use wget/git clone/etc. on compute nodes only. You cannot use them on login node. However, the downloaded files would be available in the cloud, so you can access them in login node and compute node as well.

From the above diagram, we could see that HTTPS cannot be accessed via login node.


If this clarifies your query, make sure to accept this as a solution. This would help others with similar query.


Thanks
