    A never-before-seen message stops my uploading process:

    "Server response: OR not recognized"

    Uploading stops and the message comes back with any subsequent uploading attempts. If I shut down Fetch and start over, I can resume uploading, but it stops again each time with the same message.

    The only change lately has been my DSL provider. Using Fetch 4.0.3 on a G4, MacOS 9.22

    Addendum to my message:

    Here is what the Fetch Transcript window displays:

    BTW, Fetch is set to Automatic on both sides

    I would check the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences. It looks like the STOR command that Fetch sends is being corrupted by your router or DSL modem, so that the server receives "OR" -- which isn't a valid command. Checking PASV should work around this problem, if your server supports PASV.

    Thanks,
