    I'm another poor user with an exhausted dog.

    I can connect but can't see my files. here's the log:

    230-Connected to 193.114.107.44.
    230-ProFTPD 1.2.5 Server (ProFTPD Default Installation) [193.114.107.44]
    230-Password required for username.
    230 User username logged in.

    I'm using a iMac with OS X 10.1.5 through the 56k modem. I've tried with "Use Ineternet Config" on & off and with PASV on & off but all I get is the poor mut running and an evental time out.

    I know my ISP requires the password twice but Fetch seems to allow me to do that and this seems to tally with the fact that the log says "logged in" and the status says "getting file list".

    Any suggestions?

    It looks like you posted the contents of the server messages window; could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window (choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu to open it)? Also, are you running Fetch 4.0.2?

    Thanks,

    Jim, thanks for the reply; here's the transcript:

    This is actually using Fetch 3.0.3 in OS 9 as I can't use 4.0.2 any more as it wants a password. I downloaded 4.0.1 earlier in the year and used it a couple of times. I downloaded 4.0.2 a couple of days ago and tried to use it twice to no avail.

    Searching these forums I also got enough info to try terminal ftp. This also gave me the same result; connection but no list. So it looks like the problem may be at the host end. I've already emailed them to see if they've got any ideas.

    regards

    I am having exactly the same problem. I am running Fetch 4.02 on a G4/533 MP, with OS X 10.2.1 (classic 9.2.2).

    Under OS 9, Fetch 4.02 works flawlessly. I reboot, and try to connect, and I get the running dog and a timeout. It seems to connect, moves through the directory, the runs, and runs, on "Getting file list...".

    Here is my transcript.

    Dr Madvibe: I would try checking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Fetch Preferences -- does that help?

    fidofetch: Your server apparently does not support passive mode, so I would recommend unchecking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box.

    Thanks,

    nope, 'fraid not Jim, here's the latest transcript:

    As you can see, I have checked PASV and it has registered this but stll no cigar. My site host also recommend I check PASV; I think I need another word with them.

    Thanks Jim. Unchecking the passive mode worked. For the record, the FTP server in question is Appleshare IP 6.x on a G4.

    Thanks you.
