    I use fetch 4.0.1 and OSX 10.1.3. I tried unchecking "Use Internet Config" in the General section of Preferences and checking "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" in the Firewall section of Preferences. I tried disabling all but one of the network ports. The "getting file list "goes on forever. I do not have any problems with fetch 3. Please help...

    Have you tried with "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" checked and all but one network ports disabled?

    Thanks,

    Thanks for the quick response. Just ried your suggestion-- same result. Looking at tranhscript, I get the following:

    250 CWD command successful.
    PWD
    257 "/opt/......." is current directory.
    PASV

    ABOR
    CStreamOT::Read() OTRcv() returned -3208
    CStreamOT::Read() OTRcv() returned -3208

    I'm sorry, I mistyped; could you try with "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" unchecked?

    Thanks,

    Thanks Jim, your solution worked when I was using the ethernet port.
    However, if I switch to my airport and change the network active port to Airport, it goes through the same "getting file list..."
    Do I have to do anything else for use with airport?

    This is an Apple Airport base station? I have heard reports that the latest Airport software versions require use of passive mode transfers, and apparently your server does not support them. You'd want to make sure that Airport was the only network port checked, and was first in the list of ports.

    Thanks,
