Can't get file list. (4 posts)

    I can connect to the ftp server, and can get the root file list. Fetch seems to hang on getting file lists on any folder in the root. Authentication and root list comes quickly. Have tried active and PASV, but I get the same results. The other interesting thing, I can connect to the same server with same username and password using wsftp on a pc running vista on the same home network as fetch. I'm really scratching my head on this. I'm running Fetch 5.3 on MBP, 10.5.2. Here's the trasncript window:

    Hi,

    Do you have your Mac OS X firewall turned on?

    (If you're not sure, go to the Apple menu, choose System Preferences, click the Security icon, and click the Firewall tab to find out.)

    And could you please try the following?

    * In Fetch, open the Preferences.
    * Click the General tab.
    * Make sure the "Use passive mode transfers" checkbox is checked. (I realize you said you tried it both ways, but please turn it on for this test.)
    * Click the Miscellaneous tab.
    * Make sure the "Use LIST -al command to reveal hidden files" is checked.
    * Then try connecting again.

    Let us know what happens.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    Firewall was disabled.
    Back in PASV.
    Had tried list -al command on and off, now on
    Same problem.

    LIST -al

    Hi,

    You said that you can get files lists for folders successfully using WSFTP on a Windows PC. Are the machines hooked into the network exactly the same way, that is, both plugged into the router, or both on the same wireless network? There is no extra step or difference in how the Mac connects to the network (such as, the Mac connects wirelessly but the PC is plugged directly into the router, or vice versa)?

    We'd like to see transcripts from WSFTP and Fetch of you trying to do the exact same thing in each - that is, perform exactly the same steps on each: connect, try to open the same folders. Then we can compare the two transcripts and hopefully figure out what the difference is.

    And please send us the entire transcript, from beginning to end.

    If it would be simpler, or you would prefer, you can email the two transcripts to us at:

    bb at fetchsoftworks dot com

    instead of posting them here.

    Thanks,
