    I just installed a new hard drive on my mac running OS x.3 (10.3) and am now having trouble connecting with unix servers. I didn't have that problem prior to the reinstall when I was running OS x (2.7). I need this access and don't know how to correct the problem.

    Could you choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu and post the contents the next time you see the problem? The transcript should help me figure out what is going on.

    Thanks,

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the response. I tried using cuteftp and it gave me a failure to connect message along with a suggestion to try the passive mode. First I tried it in cute FTP and it worked, The I attemped to usethe passive mode it Fetch and it worked. The iinteresting thing is that on the alternate machine that I had afetch installed on it worked with being set in the passive mode. It's quite confusing to me.

    thanks for your interest and support.

    You might need passive mode on one machine and not another if only one of them is running a firewall.

    All of our stations sit behaind a firewall. I am going to look and see if one of the stations has a personal firewall running, In any case, I want to thank you for your time and expertise. I have been working on computers since the mac 512 and have always felt that I was hanging out there alone. How nice to know that there is support when we need it.
