    Hi, I'm hoping you can help me! I have one client which I connect to via FTP that I can't successfully upload to. Others that I use work fine, it's just this one ftp site. I get all connected, and when the window shows up, the folders (directories?) show up as icons with "?" symbols over them. I can't click on or do anything with them. Below is a transcript.

    FTI, my firewall is off and the PASV mode box has been tried both checked and unchecked.

    Fetch tries to get this server to use a UNIX-style file list but for some reason that command (SITE DIRSTYLE) is blocked (perhaps by a firewall in front of the server). So the server uses a DOS-style file list, and Fetch does not understand it. I would recommend refreshing the file list a couple times; eventually Fetch will realize that the file list does not make sense and fall back on a simpler file list command.

    Thanks,
