The Galaxy's ability to pull files with user/password from FTP sites as a client is great. However, I need to pull data from an HTTP site at a sequencing center with user/password (already tried to get them to set up an FTP server, no luck). Any way to do this? If not, would it be easy to add?

Thanks for the tip!
