    I would suggest unchecking the "Use Internet Config" box in the General section of Preferences and checking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences. Does that resolve the problem?

    Thanks,

    I am having the same issues as a lot of posts here indicate with OSX. Inability to list folder contents. The problem is not helped by checking the PASV box...it then requires a port command. Below are both transcripts.

    So apparently Snap servers do not support PASV, but it isn't clear to me why it isn't working when PASV is disabled. Do other FTP clients work? Have you asked Snap about this problem?

    One other thing -- what version of Mac OS are you running?

    Thanks,

    I am running OSX 10.1.1 and have tried others with the same result. It looks like my crappy Linksys router has something to do with it as I can connect to the Snap Server internally just fine. Thanks,

    In that case it may be a Fetch bug that is at fault. You might try disabling all but one of your network interfaces in the Network preferences panel in System Preferences, and unchecking "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" -- does that work?

    The bug in question will be fixed in Fetch 4.0.2, which is under development.

    Thanks,

    Jim: Done all of this and my connections to "fetchsoftworks" and "mirrors.aol.com" FTP sites do yield a file listing I can work with. However, my ISP FTP site (upload.att.net) seems not to work, even when I configure as you suggest below and abide by my ISP's requirements (the pupply runs forever, but no file listing).

    Could this be a problem with Worldnet's (ATT's) FTP server? I seem to get the run around from them as soon as the word "Mac" comes out of my mouth. You mentioned "SNAP." Could this be the problem?

    Frustrated to the extreme; appreciate any guidance you could give.

    It could be that WorldNet does not support passive mode. Could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after you try to connect? Choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu to reveal the transcript.

    Jim:

    I took this advice and it worked! The key was to ensure the only network protocol active in the Network System Preferences is the one you're using and turning all others off.

    Thanks!

    =====

    It may be that WorldNet does not support passive mode transfers. Here's one thing to try:

    In the Firewall section of Fetch Preferences, uncheck the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box.

    In the Network panel of System Preferences, choose "Active Network Ports" from the Show pop-up menu, and uncheck all but one of the ports (leaving the port you use to connect to the Internet).

    Then quit and run Fetch, and try to connect to WorldNet.

    yes the above advice from Jim helped for me too! Only problem is that disabling other ports in my network prefs causes its own limitations! But a solution for now nonetheless.

    I have a linux proftp server ports 21 and 20, behind a freebsd nat firewall open ftp range 15000 >< 16500,

    no problems with unix or windows clients, but mac client using fetch cannot get list from server..

    The client tried already unchecking the "Use Internet Config" box in the General section of Preferences and turning passive mode on and off.

    And aslo tried using another ftp client like netfind, same thing.

    Then he tried closing all active ports ecept the one he uses for the internet.

    Still no list..

    Can you please help, I don't know what else to tell him,

    Could it be that it fetch needs a different ftp range open on firewall, thats what it seems like to me.

    I am having similar problems with a different twist. Using Fetch 4.0.1 with 10.1.2 I am able to download the file list from most servers. But when trying to get the list from the server which hosts the majority of sites which I design for clients, I get this error message, "Server response: Can't open data connection." I do have Internet Config unchecked and PASV checked.

    I have contacted the server (HostSave) and they assure me that this is all on my side. I have no problem obtaining the file list if I boot from 9.2.2 with version 4.0, but toggling between systems is a drag.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    Below is a copy of the transcript.

    It could be that this particular server does not support passive mode transfers. Have you tried turning passive mode transfers off, and disabling all but one of your network interfaces in System Preferences?

    Thanks,

    Success! Turning off passive mode seems to be the key. Thanks Jim. Great program.
