I'd like to download the following SRA files:
using aspera connect in our university linux cluster but when I try ascp'ing it asks me for a password, do you know if there is a guest password or I should write to the sra email [email protected]
Also is there a way to recursively download all the files directly? I was ascp'ing them one by one, would the following command work?

I looked at the http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK47527/pdf/Aspera_Transfer_Gui.pdf but it did not explicity say anything about requiring a password.
Please let me know if anyone has some experience with using Aspera to download GEO data.
