    Hi,

    I would recommend contacting the server administrator for help with this problem. You will want to double-check your username and password, to make sure they are what the server expects.

    Thanks,

    Username and password are both correct. What else could be happening-I am thinking it has something to do with my internet connection?

    Hi,

    You should also contact the people who run the server and double-check the hostname you should use, if you didn't already; it's possible that your hosting provider has changed it without notifying you, and the reason you cannot connect successfully is because the server you are trying to connect to no longer expects connections.

    If they confirm that all the information you are using is correct and you still can't connect, it's unlikely that your Internet connection is causing the problem. If your Internet connection was the issue, you probably wouldn't be able to connect to the Fetch Softworks server successfully.

    Instead, the most likely explanation is that there is something wrong with the server, and you will need to contact the server people and ask them why you're still getting an error even though you have the correct information.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Thanks,

    Yes I contacted them (through yahoo) and all the info is correct. I think it is probably on my connection, because I cannot download things on some sites because there is a privacy blocker of some kind at my work. Please let me know if that could be the issue?

    Hi,

    I suppose it could be the issue.

    If you're on an office network, you should consult with your network administrator or IT person about the problem and see if you can get it resolved.

    If you're at home, you could try restarting your network equipment (your cable/DSL modem, and your router or wireless base station if you have one) and see if that helps.

    If you want to email us the connection information - the hostname, username, and password - we can try it and see if we can connect successfully. If we can, then it would indicate a problem with your Internet connection or network. If we cannot connect either, it would indicate a server problem. If you want to do this, send the email to bugs@fetchsoftworks.com and we'll let you know what we find out.

    Thanks,
