    A few weeks ago Fetch stopped working for me. My webmaster tells me he hasn;t changed anything so I'm stuck. Here is my transcript. It fails right after ftp_list command. Thanks for you help, B.

    Hi Brian,

    Please try the following to see if it fixes the problem:

    * Go to the Fetch menu, and choose Preferences.
    * Click the Miscellaneous tab.
    * Uncheck the "Use 'LIST -al' command to reveal hidden files" checkbox.

    Does that help? If not, please let us know.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    That didn;t work but I did get it working. I changed from FTP to SFTP and it works like a champ. Thanks for your help. B.

    Hi Brian,

    You're welcome and we're glad to hear you found a solution. In general it's a good idea to use SFTP if the server supports it anyway!

    Please let us know if you have further questions or run into a new problem.

    Best,
