How to download to linux server

#1

I am trying to download an extract directly to a linux server. I’m using this code:

wget --http-user=username --http-password=secretpassword https://usa.ipums.org/usa-action/downloads/extract_files/filename

The problem is, it only downloads 7.5KB of it (definitely not all of it). Why does it only do that, and how can I get it to download all of it?

Thank you.

Currently the IPUMS system does not support logging in via the command line. The file you are receiving is simply a note that explains that you need to login to your IPUMS account in the conventional way. If you are willing, could you email some additional information about your computer environment to ipums@umn.edu? Maybe together we can help you work around this issue.
