    I have successfully connected to many ftp servers since trying your program, however, I have come across 2 servers which I just cannot connect to. And I am positive that the user/password are correct.

    I have also read through the other posts of messages saying they get the same message, but the solutions didn't work for me.

    The message I get when trying to connect is:
    Error: the server dropped the connection (it may be too busy).

    I use Mac OS 10.2.8 on a Powermac G4 Dual 800. I have also tried it from other computers, networks, and ftp clients (suggesting it would be the servers fault, however, a friend of mine also using fetch can connect no problem... the only noticable difference, i'm in canada, he's in the UK).

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after you get that error? Choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu to open the window.

    Thanks,

    Sorry, but I do not get much from the Transcript window:

    Fetch 4.0.3 System 0x1028 Expires 12/06/2003 TR
    Connecting to www.p-d.uk.com port 21 (11/27/03 11:22:04 AM)

    It goes this far and I get the error.

    I can't connect to that hostname either, so either the server is down or it's rejecting connections from outside the UK. I would contact the server administrator to let them know about the problem.

    Thanks,

    I have the same problem. I get a disconnect after the main directory filelist starts. There are always 42 out of 119 items that are shown. If I manually change to a lower directory level, I can reconnect then go back up a level and all is well. This has only started recently, probably with Panther.
    Attached is the transcript.

    Bob Z: What happens if you choose Refresh File List from the Directories menu after you get an incomplete file list?

    p.s. It's a good idea to start a new topic when your problem is very different from the one being discussed.

    Jim: Thanks for your help and speedy reply. I'll try to contact the administrator about my problem, as suggested.

    cheers

    Jim, when I Refresh the list I get another "dropped connection" error message.

    Bob Z: Have you tried with any other FTP client, or just with Fetch?

    Thanks,
