    That error means that Fetch's attempt to connect to the server in order to retrieve the file list timed out. That suggests some sort of network block between you and the server -- are you behind a firewall?

    Yes. But shouldn't PASV not be blocked by it?

    Firewalls can block PASV connections, depending on how they are configured. I suggest consulting with the firewall administrator.

    Thanks,

    Well, the PASV connection to the Fetch server is fine. The extent of the firewall is NAT on a simple LinkSys router. That's why I don't understand...is there anything else to try? (there is no firewall admin to consult, unfortunately, this is a small home network)
