    This server appears to be dropping your connection as soon as you ask for a file list. You could try unchecking "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" in the Firewall section of Fetch Preferences. Or contact the server administrator to see if she or he has any idea why connections are failing.

    Thanks,
