    I can not connect to any FTP's. The dog runs for awhile and then I get an error that says "Error: the connection attempt timed out".
    I have changed the firewall preference to PASV, and have attempted to connect to FTP sites using Transmit 1.7. Nothing is working.

    I have OS9 Macintosh G3 tower, and a cable modem w/comcast cable.

    Fetch Transcripts read the following:
    Fetch 4.0.3 System 0x922 Serial FETCHFL001-BAT9-G05A TR
    Using USER with no logon (aka USER user@host) proxy server host:proxy, port:8080, userid:
    Connecting to proxy port 8080 (9/8/03 11:13:26 AM)
    Using USER with no logon (aka USER user@host) proxy server host:proxy, port:8080, userid:
    Connecting to proxy port 8080 (9/8/03 11:18:42 AM)

    Could it be a problem with my internet connection? I have no other internet connection problems. Any advise you could give me would be helpful.

    Thank you.

    I would suggest setting the Proxy Type pop-up menu in the Firewall section of Fetch Preferences to None. What does the transcript look like then?

    Thanks,
