    Have treid all of the advice listed in other threads - here is MY transcript (have tried with PASV on and off in Fetch prefs):

    Fetch 4.0.3 System 0x1024 Serial FETCHFL001-57X7-M3H5 TR
    Connecting to dreamtime-uk.com port 21 (11/4/03 23:32:49)
    220 icomweb.icom-web.com FTP server (Version 6.00LS) ready.
    USER dreamt
    331 Password required for dreamt.
    PASS
    230 User dreamt logged in, access restrictions apply.
    SYST
    215 UNIX Type: L8 Version: BSD-199506
    PWD
    257 "/" is current directory.
    MACB ENABLE
    500 'MACB ENABLE': command not understood.
    PWD
    257 "/" is current directory.
    PORT 192,168,0,2,153,175
    200 PORT command successful.
    LIST

    and then the dog just runs n runs!

    Any help appreciated

    And eventually I get

    425 Can't build data connection: Connection refused.
    ftp_list: -30000 (state == GETTING_LIST)

    And finally

    PWD
    257 "/" is current directory.

    and although the window says 'connected' I still get no file list.

    PS: Apologies for 3-part post.

    I'd recommend checking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Fetch Preferences. Does that help?

    Thanks,

    Jim, tried that and it didn't make any difference.

    However - I have had success now. It seems the only way I can get it to work is to uncheck PASV both in Fetch & in Network prefs and then in Sharing prefs I have to allow FTP access (assume this isn't "endangering" the machine to "attack").

    I can leave the Mac built-in Firewall on.

    All seems to work OK.

    Just to clarify, it shouldn't matter whether PASV is chosen in Network Preferences -- Fetch only consults its own preference for that setting.

    Thanks,
