    Hi Jim,

    I'm having trouble getting a file listing on my client's NT 4.0 server. I searched the message board archives and looked through the FAQs, but haven't found a problem just like this. The FAQs discussed the issue "How do I configure Fetch to work with MS Proxy 2.0 on an NT 4 server?" but I don't think it applies to this situation.

    Here is the transcript from the connection attempt. It appears to be authenticating OK, but sits there with running dog until timeout several minutes later. I've tried both Fetch 3 and 4, with the same results. I can log in and get a file list using FTP in telnet session (on another server) with no problem. I used WS_FTP on a PC to access the NT server successfully, but I don't use the PC for my work.

    Any idea what's up?

    Thanks,

    - Michael

    You might try unchecking "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" in the Firewall section of Preferences -- are the results any different?

    Wow - the results sure are different. The file list popped up immediately. Thanks.

    I usually have the "use passive mode" box checked; is there any way to tell Fetch to uncheck it (not use passive mode) just for this particular shortcut?

    Thanks,

    No, there currently isn't a way to associate preferences with particular shortcuts.
