    hi,
    since a recent crash i have not been able to connect to my server (i have three ftp addresses and have tried all 3)

    i get:
    error: connection timed out

    if i try to stop the connection FETCH quits.

    I am on:
    PowerBook G4
    FETCH 4.0.1 (have updated to FETCH 5 but version shows 4.0.1)

    Any ideas?

    Hi,

    First, make sure you are running Fetch 5.0.5. If the first line of the Transcript window doesn't say Fetch 5.0.5, you are still running your old version. You can download Fetch 5.0.5 again from our webpage at http://fetchsoftworks.com , and reinstall it. (You do not need to pay again for Fetch 5.)

    If the transcript window still says Fetch 4.0.1, let us know.

    Next, make sure you are using these settings in the Fetch Preferences:

    * In the General pane, "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" is checked.
    * In the Proxy pane, the Proxy Type is "None"
    * In the Obscure pane, "Contact server during long transfers" is unchecked.

    And then try to connect to the servers again.

    If this does not help, please let us know and we'll investigate further.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire
