    Hi there,

    I've been trying to access graphics files that have been uploaded by colleagues. Other users of the account can open the folders and access the content so I know it is there, however when I try to open the folder I get the following message (from Fetch Transcript).

    Making data connection to 198.66.242.157 port 55295
    LIST -al
    150 Opening ASCII mode data connection transfering:[file list]
    450 res-al: No such file or directory
    ftp_list: 2,-30000 (state == GETTING_LIST)
    Fetch could not get the file list because the FTP server sent an unexpected response. (Check the Fetch Transcript window for more information.
    Server responded: “ res-al: No such file or directory”)

    I've checked to see that I'm using the current version of Fetch. Could you please advise what the problem is?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    Could you post the complete contents of the Fetch Transcript window after you see this error? That should give me some clues to understand what is going on.

    Thanks,

    Hi Diane,

    Thanks for that additional information. It might help to change a Fetch settings; here are the steps to take:

    1. Choose "Preferences…" from the Fetch menu
    2. Click the "Miscellaneous" tab
    3. Uncheck the "Use ‘LIST -al’ command to reveal hidden files" checkbox

    Then try the upload again. If you still see a problem, please post an updated transcript.

    Thanks,

    Jim Matthews

    Thanks for your assistance Jim.

    I changed the setting and it didn't immediately work, but after logging out and back on again it is now all sorted.

    Thanks again,
    Diane
