ATTENTION ALL SOLARSOFT USERS: NEW PROCEDURE FOR UPDATING SOLARSOFTAugust 15, 2019, from Richard Morton
As of 7 August, NASA is blocking external access to ftp servers within NASA. This includes sohoftp, which is the distribution site for SolarSoft updates. A new procedure has been developed to install and update SolarSoft using the external applications cURL and wget. The web page below explains how to prepare your local SolarSoft installation to use this new method for Windows, Linux and Mac operating systems.
All users have to modify their installations, so we encourage you to follow the instructions as soon as possible.
If you have any questions or problems, a SolarSoft helpdesk has been set up at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

P.S. The update team especially want to thank Sam Freeland for all his hard work on the migration from FTP to HTTPS.
