I'm usually using python's urllib to download MODIS files from the Earth Data server ( This always used to work nicely. Today, I noticed, however, that only the download for the xml files is working. The download for the hdf files is just hanging for ever (or became ultra slow). I tried this on different platforms, so it's definitely not a problem of my internet connection. When I download the files directly from the server (for example it works smoothly.

Did anything change to the server in the last month to explain this?

Good Morning,
Could you send us you script and we can take a look to see what may be going on. I can't think of any changes on that may have caused this.
