Important notice about the deactivation of the STEREO ftp

Notice to curl and wget users
STEREO system administrators has implemented a 301 redirect on the url https://stereoftp.nascom.nasa.gov.
A number of our users use the CURL utility to automatically download STEREO data. The command frequently used:
curl -O https://stereoftp.nascom.nasa.gov/path/to/some/file.fits
Curl does not by default recognize that a page has been redirected. Adding the -L option will trigger CURL to follow redirects.
curl -O -L https://stereoftp.nascom.nasa.gov/path/to/some/file.fits
Initial reports indicated that WGET continues to work fine with redirects.
However, that does not appear to be the case. We recommend for both wget
and curl to use stereo-ssc.nascom.nasa.gov instead of the stereoftp address
to avoid redirects.
