Fetch "Connection refused" (19 posts)

    Hi there,

    Been trying to set up a wordpress blog.

    I downloaded fetch to use as my FTP client, but I keep getting the error message "connection was refused"

    I contacted a friend, and they were able to connect without any problems using the same information I was. So, is there anything non-obvious I need to check in my network settings, or is it more likely something on my computer?

    Here's copy pasta from the transcript window:

    Fetch 5.7 (5H314) Intel (Mac App Store) running on Mac OS X 10.7.2 (11C74) Intel English
    StuffIt Engine 0x820, StuffIt SDK Version 10.1.1b1
    Connecting to www.audiblethoughts.co.uk port 21 (Mac OS X firewall is allowing connections) (27/11/2011 20:36)
    An FTP connection to “www.audiblethoughts.co.uk” could not be opened because the connection was refused. (Contact the server administrator for more information.)

    It looks like there's a problem with your computer's connection to the Internet. Can you use Fetch to connect to ftp.fetchsoftworks.com (leave the Username and Password fields blank)?

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply, but I decided to sleep on the problem...and it worked! Woke up this morning with Fetch running beautifully, so something I did last night must have fixed it somehow!

    Hey,

    I'm having an issue connecting to the server..

    "An FTP connection to "aubr4830.db.10075857.hostedresource.om" could not be opened because the connection was refused."

    I've tried connecting to ftp.fetchsoftworks.com. Works fine. Am I missing an obvious step?

    It looks like the server you are trying to connect to (aubr4830.db.10075857.hostedresource.com) is not operating. You should contact the server administrators to find out if you should be using a different server.

    Thanks,

    I'm having this problem as well, but I can't connect to ftp.fetchsoftworks.com. Is there a setting I need to change or something?
    Thanks,

    Hi PJ,

    What error message do you get when you try to connect to ftp.fetchsoftworks.com? Could you choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu and post the contents -- they may have information that helps us figure out what is going wrong.

    Thanks,

    Here is the transcript:

    Hi,

    Fetch is passing the password you entered to the visioninactiononline.com server, and the server is saying that it isn't the correct password for the vsisoni4 account. I would contact the administrator of visioninactiononline.com and reset the password.

    Thanks,

    I can't connect to wordpress via fetch. I have the same error "...the connection was refused" What do I do?

    Hi J,

    After you get that error could you choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu, and post the contents here? That could give me clues to the source of this problem.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    According to this web page, WordPress does not accept FTP logins:

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/

    I would read that page for more details.

    Thanks,

    Oh, thank you. I assumed from the previous posts and other reading I had done, that I could use FTP. Thank you for your help!

    I have been connecting to this server all week to make updates. All of a sudden, I can't login. I am able to connect to the Fetch server.

    Fetch 5.7.3 (5H683) Intel (Web Store) running on Mac OS X 10.9.4 (13E28) Intel English

    The jfs.eesd.org server appears to be up and responding. If you still can't connect I would try restarting your Mac and cable modem (or whatever device you use to connect to the Internet). If you still can't connect you should contact your Internet Service provider.

    Thanks,
