    Wehn downloading from an FTP site that's running FileZilla, I get an error "Unknown Format". It looks like the Unix filename string has the permission flags and such as part of the string that's passed to Fetch. This works fine for all my other FTP clients, is there something I need to configure with Fetch? Or maybe with the server?

    Could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after you get the error?

    Thanks,

    It seems that Fetch is receiving the directory listings, but not parsing the strings to ignore the file attributes. You can see the first RETR command has the full listing of the file included...

    Fetch isn't parsing the file list entries because the permission codes are non-standard; they start -xw but should start -rw.

    If you choose "Refresh File List" from the Directories menu does that fix the file list?

    Thanks,

    Refreshing the file list sometimes works, but it takes a while to get it to read the names.

    Thanks for reporting this problem; we'll see about fixing it in the next release.
