    Hi there,
    I've been trying to use Fetch during this trial period, however when I try to make the FTP connection, I'm told: An FTP connection could not be opened because the server rejected the Password.
    My friend uses the identical Hostname, Username, and Password flawlessly on his PC.
    I tried the solution given to Monica on the Message Board, but it does not work in my case.
    Server responded: "Not logged in."
    Help,
    Francis.

    Hi Francis,

    This seems really obvious, but make sure that your Caps Lock key is off when you're entering your password.

    If that doesn't help, we'd like some more information to diagnose the problem.

    After you try to connect and you get the error message, could you please choose Fetch Transcript from the Window menu, copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them into a reply to this message?

    We'll take a look and try to figure out what's going on.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    Hi Francis,

    We'd like you to try to connect to your server using the command line ftp client that's built into Mac OS X. That will help us determine whether this is a Fetch problem, or something else. To do this:

    * Open the Applications folder.
    * Open the Utilities folder.
    * Open the Terminal application.
    * At the prompt, type:

    ftp -a your-server-address

    * Replace "your-server-address" with the hostname for your server.
    * And then press the Return key.
    * Then the command-line ftp client will ask you for your username and the password.
    * Either you'll get a message from the server telling you're logged in, or an error message.
    * Either way, exit the command-line ftp client by typing "quit" (without the quotes).

    Let us know what happens.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    Hi Scott,
    Thanks for responding.
    I could not get through to all the founctions you suggested.
    As I pressed the Return key, this is what happens.

    Hi Francis,

    I apologize, I made a typo. The correct command to enter in the Terminal window is:

    ftp your-server-address

    (no "-a").

    Thanks,

    Hi Scott,
    No worries. This is what I get after the correction.

    Hi Francis,

    I was a bit unclear above - when the command-line client prompts you for your "Name," enter your username; then when it prompts you for your password, you should enter your password.

    Let us know what it says when you do that.

    Thanks,

    Hi Scott,
    Sorry, I should have explained, that after I type in the Hostname, then press Return, the Command-line ftp client does not ask for my Username, or and Password. This is what happens next.

    Hi Francis,

    This line here:

      Name (66.226.20.91:francisglasgow):

    is actually asking for your username, even though it doesn't say "username."

    In response to that line, type in your username, and then it will ask you for your password.

    Thanks,

    Hi Scott,
    Thanks for sticking with me and explaining that.
    Now when I Get to the point where I'm asked for the Password, my computer keyboard does not respond. (in other words I cannot physically type in the Password. This is as far as I can get.

    Hi Francis,

    When it asks you for your password and you type a response, nothing will appear on-screen - to hide your password, the command line just doesn't show anything. Your keyboard really is still working fine. At the prompt, type your password and then press the Return key, and you should get a response from the server, even though it appears that nothing has been typed.

    Thanks,

    Thanks.

    Hi Francis,

    Thanks.

    Well, since the command-line FTP client and Fetch both give errors, it appears to be either a problem with the username and password you are using, or a problem with the server.

    I would double-check with your friend to make sure that you have the correct username and password. If you do, I would contact the server maintainer to see what the problem is; perhaps it is not accepting connections from your Macintosh for some reason.

    Thanks,
