    Fetch was working fine, then one day I came to work and it gave me an "Error -1" message when trying to connect to my server.

    I have two macs here, both have fetch. One can connect fine and one gets the error message. My server is not down. The other computer can connect to it. I have not changed any preferences.

    I am not able to connect to ftp.softworks.com.

    Here is my transcript:

    Make sure that you're connecting to the correct IP address or hostname. I wasn't able to connect to any of the ones in your transcript, which suggests that they aren't correct. For example, ftp.softworks.com should be ftp.fetchsoftworks.com.

    Thanks,
