    hi all,

    i have tried a numbers of things i have found on the help board, including that applescript. i did change 4.0.1 to 4.0.2. but then it is starting up fetch. how can go from here? hints tips anyone? tnx

    kind regards,

    luke

    Some UNIX servers hide those files unless a non-standard file listing command is used. To have Fetch use the non-standard command, run this AppleScript (you only need to run it once):

    tell application "Fetch 4.0.1"
    set use LIST minus al to true
    end tell

    Or run the SetSecretOptions script in the Fetch Example Scripts folder.

    The AppleScript is no longer necessary. In Fetch 4.0.3 you want to:

    1) Choose "Preferences..." from the Customize menu.
    2) Click on the Misc tab
    3) Choose "Send LIST -al to UNIX Servers" from the Obscure Options pop-up menu.
    4) Press OK.

    After that you should see dot files.

    Thanks,

    Thanks from me, too! I've tried two other FTP clients and none of them worked. The one I tried on my PC worked. Now Fetch works to read these files! Thanks!!!

    So why is it so difficult for other clients to see the files? Is it my host?

    Yes, it's the fact that your host's server won't list all the files unless the FTP client sends a non-standard command. Some FTP clients will send that command automatically, some (like Fetch) can be configured to send it, and others stick to the FTP standard (and so can't see those files).

    Thanks,
