    We are trying to access an IIS ftp server that everything seems to work fine for PC based users. When we connect with fetch on a MAC running 9.2 we get the following message

    Try checking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Fetch Preferences. Does that help?

    Thanks,

    Sorry I should have stated that we did try the passive mode on. By default we had it set to off already.

    Problem Resolved;

    The Linksys router that was being used seem to be the cause of the problem. It was configured to port forward FTP. Using port 21. This worked fine for the PC's. However in a document on the linksys site it showed forwarding 20 and 21 both udp and tcp, I disabled the built in port forward and created a forward range and bang it worked
