    I've installed pure-ftpd on a mac osx10.3 machine thats located at my office. Using the terminal program's ftp command on my mac at home -also a 10.3 machine- i can connect to my pure-ftpd running mac and upload files etc. Also using the Transmit ftp program. Fetch 4.03 will connect to the machine. It logs in and displays the root dir of my office machine but it wont list the files in that directory, looping endlessly in a getting file list. Therefore i cant use fetch to upload files. I think it's a bug in fetch, am i correct?

    It's probably just a difference in settings. I'd change the setting of the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" checkbox in the Firewall section of Fetch Preferences. Does that help? If not I'd be curious to compare transcripts between Fetch and Transmit.

    Thanks,

    YES! It helped. I've turned the passive mode off and now i got the listing. So it seems fetch does like pure FTP afterall! Grz from the netherlands

    I was having a similar problem but when I turned the firewall off in system 10/3/2 it works. I am only doing this from my mac to the server however. You may have to turn both firewalls off.
