Yes, galaxyData is the only persistent volume you have in your data only 
cluster, so everything should go there.  SCP should work for getting data 
there, unless the file is already hosted somewhere in which case wget is 
probably a better choice.

And yes, FTP is configured specifically for Galaxy uploads and is unavailable 
in the case of a non-galaxy cluster.  The usernames used for logging in, etc, 
come straight from the Galaxy database.
