I'm trying to upload a file and I keep getting the following message -
Fetch could not put "file name" because the FTP server sent an unexpected response. Server responsed "Command not understood"

When you use the Put command, change the setting of the "If a file already exists:" menu to "Replace existing file". Do not use "Pick a different name".
When this menu is set to "Pick a different name", Fetch sends the "STOU" command to the server (asking the server to give your file a unique name to make sure it does not replace an existing file). Some servers do not support the "STOU" command, and give these errors as a result.
Let us know if this does not fix the problem. Thanks,
That did the trick!
