I'll leave the rsync question to the experts - worked for me, but I don't know
why it worked for me (linux/ubuntu laptop, not networked) and not for you .
About the filenames: You can download a file listing to text.txt by
.../galaxy-dist$ rsync -avzP rsync://datacache.g2.bx.psu.edu/indexes > text.txt
and then choose which one you want. File size warning: this is something like
200 MB. Trying to download the much shorter list for phiX might be a quick way
to check whether it works:
.../galaxy-dist$ rsync -avzP rsync://datacache.g2.bx.psu.edu/indexes/phiX >
