    I just upgraded to OSX 10.3.2. When I try to connect to shortcuts using Fetch this morning, I get the error, "Server response: Can't build data connection: Operation already in progress."
    This happens with all connections to any server.
    Any idea what's up?

    On further poking at it, I see that only one connection gives the data connection error. All others just hang, and the little dog runs and runs and runs.

    Here's the data connection error transcript:

    I aborted after a few minutes. Or that's what it seemed like.
    Thanks for your help.

    Checking Passive Mode Transfer allows me to connect.
