    Have just had a proxy server installed and can't seem to get to connect to my remote sites, all I'm getting is the little dog running and then a message or 'error -1'.

    I am using a G3 Mac with os9.1 and fetch version 3.0.1.

    I think I've got my settings right, in the preferences panel under firewall i have 'PASV', 'use proxy server' and 'use socks gateway' all checked with the latter 2 having my local machine ip address followed by 8080 (the port), I also have 'use data ports from 1025 to 65535'. In the internet config I have 'use FTP passive mode' again and under the firewalls section i have the socks firewall, web proxy, gopher proxy and ftp proxy with my machines number and port 8080...

    any suggestions anybody??

    cheers, ben.

    You don't want both "Use proxy server" and "Use SOCKS gateway". Do you know what kind of proxy server it is? Does it support FTP (and not just FTP-via-HTTP)?

    Thanks,

    The server is a Terrapin Multi-net and I think it is a FTP-via-HTTP, there is no SOCKS gateway as yet. I have also downloaded v.4.0.2 if that is any help...

    cheers,

    That proxy server only supports FTP via HTTP, and Fetch needs actual FTP support. So I'm afraid Fetch won't work through that proxy server.

    I've contacted the server people and sorted it out but it does look like I'm going to have to use one of the donkey PC's on the network, but thanks anyway...
