    Have you tried checking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences?

    Thanks,

    I get a similar error.

    server response: illegal PORT command

    Passive mode is NOT checked. I don't know what to do... I can use fetch at all...

    I would try checking "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" in Fetch Preferences -- does that help?
