    When I try to make a new connection, I get to 'Getting file list' then another box appears which says 'Server response: Illegal PORT command' and I can get no further. Can anyone please help?

    First, make sure you are running Fetch 4.0.2. If that does not do the trick check the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences.

    Thanks,
