    We're using Fetch 4.0.3 on two Mac G4's in our office, mainly to upload printer files to a remove server at our printing facility.

    In the past few days, I've lost the ability to upload from my computer, although the other seems to connect fine. When I connect, I get a welcome message from the server, but the file list never appears. After a while, the connection times out.

    I've checked the firewall settings and PASV mode is enabled. I'd appreciate any help you could provide on what to look at next.

    Here's a transcript of my latest session, connecting to Fetch first (which worked OK), then to our print facility server (which timed out):

    It's possible that a firewall has been installed at the printing facility. Could you try unchecking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Fetch Preferences, and then connecting to that server?

    Thanks,

    Jim,

    That seemed to work. Thanks!
