    i can't get fetch to connect...it just says "connecting" continually- everything else seems to be working fine, any ideas?

    Hi,

    First, check the Fetch Preferences for these settings:

    * In the General pane, "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" is checked.
    * In the Proxy pane, the Proxy Type is "None"

    If that doesn't help, after you try to connect and wait for 30 seconds to make sure the connection isn't going through, could you please choose Fetch Transcript from the Window menu, copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them here? We'll take a look and try to figure out what's going on.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire
