    I cannot get Fetch to login to the directory I want (/users/~??????) via my shortcut. I get the transcript below (Note: I have changed the USER info to ??????, to protect the guilty, er, innocent).
    You will notice I can get it to go to that directory (/users/~??????) by doing a "change directory" command (see below).

    Connecting to users2.ev1.net port 21 (3/3/02 12:56:01 PM)

    When Fetch opens a shortcut it goes to the specified directory in two steps; first it goes to the parent, then to the actual target directory. Unfortunately, in this case the server does not let you enter the parent (/users) directory.

    One workaround would be to change the directory part of the shortcut from /users/~?????? to /users/~??????/. -- that should work.

    Thanks,

    thanks for the help, but it still didn't work.

    Did you add "/." (a slash followed by a period) to the directory path for the shortcut? I don't think my directions were clear in the earlier posting.

    That did it!

    I had failed to notice the period after the forward slash (I thought it was just the period at the end of the sentence).

    Thank you for your patience and SUPERB help!
