Can't access the website of data processing components by distributed separately

Dear everyone,

I remembered the processing component for OLCI (SEN-3A) was separately released as a test version, now I want to use it to process some OCLI data in terminal window. However, I can not access the website of data processing components now(http://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/ocssw/). Was the server blocked, or others?

Regards,
zhigang

The US Government has turned off "public-facing" http servers, see Changes to data distribution from the OB.DAAC and the OceanColor Web and Earthdata Login for Data Access.  The old URL you mentioned should redirect to https://oceandata.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/ocssw/ (it does for me using Firefox).   Unless you are using a very recent linux distro, you will probably need to update some of your software (python, git, wget, curl, security certificates) in order to use install_ocssw.py and other scripts.    If you have scripts that use wget or curl you will want to add options to use cookies. Specific details for a number of commonly used systems have been mentioned in these forums. The current SeaDAS GUI does not handle the changes and will be updated "real soon now".  Until then, you have to download a new install_ocssw.py and run it in a terminal to update the Python scripts.

Yes, it works when switching the http to https. I appreciate that you give me lots of valuable information. Looking forward to the release of next version SeaDAS.
