EMBL anonymous ftp server - please use correct address

There seems to exist some confusion concerning the correct address of the
EMBL anonymous FTP server. Some users complained that they could not see
any files and could not change directories.

The simple reason was that an incorrect Internet address was used. The EMBL
anonymous FTP server is located at ftp.embl-heidelberg.de [],
NOT embl-heidelberg.de. The latter is a completely different machine.

Secondly, our Internet connection is not yet optimal despite our attempts
improve the situation. As Jaime Prilusky has pointed out in a previous
to this newsgroup, the Israeli EMBnet node at sunbcd.weizmann.ac.il mirrors
the EMBL archives and might provide better connections for some users.
