    hi. i'm trying out fetch in OS 10.2, and have struggled for three days to upload some TIFF files to an FTP server. when i look at the transcript window, it shows me connecting and logging in successfully. however when fetch goes to get a list of files, it quits.
    then if i use the "put" command, i am logged in and taken to the correct directory on the server. but as soon as the first file starts to be stored, i get "ABOR" followed by a time-out error message. i've tried all the settings i can think of, including active/passive. can you help? thanks

    Hi,

    When you say "When Fetch goes to get a list of files, it quits" do you mean the entire Fetch application closes down, or do you mean it doesn't get the file list?

    We'll need some more information to help analyze the problem. What version of Fetch are you using, and what version of Mac OS X 10.2?

    And could you post the contents of the transcript window here after you try to get the file list and put a file?

    Thanks,

    Thanks for your reply, Scott.

    Actually, I am using OS X 10.3.9 and Fetch 5.0.4. Fetch does not quit, it gives me a timeout message. Here is a typical transcript; trying to get a file list and then put a file:

    Make sure that your OS X firewall is turned off. To check that, choose "System Preferences..." from the Apple menu, and click the Sharing icon, then the Firewall tab. If the firewall is running click the Stop button and then try Fetch again. If it still does not work please post the transcript.

    Thanks,

    Scott, it appears that the problem was with the server's firewal, not mine. Several large files have now transferred without a problem. Thanks for your help.
