    I'm trying to upload my site with the trial version of fetch. I have also tried Dreamweaver which didn't seem to work either. I'm able to connect but not put my files. I am so new to this that any help at all would be much appreciated. I have a G3 and am running OS 8.6 For my username and password I am using the info from the place that is hosting my space.

    What happens when you try to put your files?

    Thanks,

    My problem is similar to Zinka's. I'm also new to the process (and very frustrated. I've a G4 and am running OS X.3. I can upload single files if within Fetch proper but can't upload anything at all from within Dreamweaver MX 2004. Consistently get a message saying that the server isn't responding; that my password and login are incorrect. I'm using the same password and login as when working from within Fetch proper and CAN upload. It's also the password and login I need to put files into the host server's directory for my webspace.

    I'd recommend taking that issue up with Macromedia. My best guess is that there's a difference in the settings for Fetch and Dreamweaver's FTP feature, perhaps the passive mode setting, but I'm not very familiar with Dreamweaver myself.

    Thanks,

    Somehow I got it to work! It created it's own folder "www/" and it took. As long as it works-it made my day:)

    Maureen--
    I have asked several people about Dreamweaver (1 programmer, and 2 advanced web designers), all who said don't use dreamweaver to upload, so I still don't have that one answered.
