    I have been using Fetch 4.0.3 since I upgraded to OS X last year, with no problems at all. I just tried to use it this afternoon, for the first time since upgrading to 10.3.2.

    I have tried a number of different servers and all give me a Host Not Found error. These are all servers that I know to be active, so something is clearly amiss.

    Any ideas what could be at the root of this error?

    Thanks,

    My guess is that your proxy settings are messed up. Choose Preferences from the Customize menu, click on the Firewall tab, and set the Proxy Type pop-up to "None". Can you connect then? If not, could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window?

    That did the trick - thanks!

    It had been reset (not sure how) to one of the other options, and showed a Proxy Host setting of:

    t"Yàø?Ó†

    Any idea how that could happen? Should that setting be deleted as well?

    Thanks again for your help.

    I've seen a few other cases of that as well; I'm not sure what the cause is. That information may come from Internet Config, and it may be that some bug is corrupting the Internet Config database.

    I would recommend clearing out the Proxy Host field.

    Thanks,
