    If your server does not show files with names starting with a dot you might be able to work-around the problem by running this AppleScript:

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

    Let me know if that does not work.

    Your Mac should have come with a program named "Script Editor". Run Script Editor, paste in the script from my previous posting, and press the "Run" button.

    Thanks,

    You should try it with Fetch 4.0.1; if memory serves this feature was added after 4.0b7.

    Try connecting to your server and see if the .htaccess file is listed now. If it isn't could you post the contents of Fetch Transcript?

    Thanks,

    The script tells Fetch to send the command "LIST -al" instead of "LIST" to get the file list. "LIST" should work, but some Unix servers hide files with names that start with a period, and the non-standard "LIST -al" command gets around that. The setting is stored in the Fetch Prefs file, so reinstalling Fetch on the same hard disk should not change the setting.

    Wao Thanks a lot. You dont know the days i have been trying to find an answer to this problem. Thanks, Thanks, Thanks ... :)

    In Fetch 4.0.3 you can choose "Send LIST -al to UNIX servers" from the Obscure Options menu in the Misc. section of Preferences instead of running a script.
