    Connecting to some ftp servers (and also the one with my site) I can't get the file listing. It stops for several minutes on "Getting file list...". So i contacted my ISP technical support, and they are not able to solve my problem, so i think it's my problem (or fetch). Using the Shell FTP command everything work right. Here is a transcript connecting to 2 different servers with the same problem:
    System Version = 0x1004

    Please help. :)

    I'd recommend checking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences -- does that help?

    That's very odd. Are you using a firewall or proxy server? What version of Mac OS are you running?

    I have also experienced this problem.

    To overcome it, I either press "Stop" and when the Status says "Connected" I send my file(s) across or if I require a different directory I use the "Change Directory" option under "Directories" and type the path of the location I want.

    I have had no problems doing it this way & find it much quicker than waiting for the files to list.

    The first transcript was using 10.0.4, the 2nd was with 10.0.0 because I had to format the OS X partition (all the app became folders... and the non packag carbon ones weren't running... argh), now i'm downloading the 10.0.4 update again... and no, i'm not running under any firewall or proxy.
    Thanks

    lee: thanks, but your trick don't help me... when I stop it takes 3 minutes to say me that i'm disconnected... :-)

    I'm afraid I'm stumped; I'd have to look with a network analyzer to see what's going on.

    Do you have any luck with other FTP clients?

    Thanks anyway.

    If this can hel you more... I've noticed the same problem with Transport 1.7b from Panic.

    Ah, another problem i've seen:
    If i set Fetch as my default ftp helper on IE 5.1 PR for OS X, and I click on a ftp link Fetch opens and next it quits unexpectedly. Does IE 5.1.1 resolve this?

    Sorry... Transmit non Transport, and "hel" = "help" :)
