    Whenever I try to connect to a server or upload a file, a window pops up saying 'Server Response: Illegal PORT Command.' I checked the box in Preferences: Firewall, but it did not do anything, then I unchecked the 'Use Internet Config' box in General preferances, and it still doesn't work. I'm using a G3 iMac with OS 10.1.

    Thanks for any help.

    You might double-check the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" checkbox; until you uncheck "Use Internet Config" the system will reset the passive mode setting to whatever is set in System Preferences.

    My provider does not want me to use passive mode. They say it won't work with their system. I have tryed both ways and have been unable to find anything that works. With passive "on" I can see my files but can't upload. With it "off" I can't even see my files. (Note: Use Internet Config. is unchecked) Here are some log entrys. Help and Thanks.

    OK, I've got a similar problem, using a new iMac with OSX (10.1.2). I've done as instructed and still, when I try to upload a file, I get the message "No PORT command issued first." Argh.

    Another thing to try is unchecking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" checkbox and disabling all but one of your network ports. To do that, open System Preferences and choose the Network pane. Select "Active Network Ports" from the pop-up menu and uncheck all the ports except the one you use to connect to the Internet. Then press the Apply Now button.

    Thanks,

    I tried this, and now I'm back to the perpetual "getting file list" running dog. Here's what I tried:
    1. unchecked the "use passive mode transfers" AND disabled my other ports (only other one besides internet is ethernet). Got the getting file list forever.
    2. Then I tried the above, plus rechecking "use internet config" Got the running dog.

    I notice theres a thing in system prefs under proxies that says "use passive ftp mode" should that be checked?

    I have also tried disabling all but the one port with no luck... Would it help you Jim, if I gave you my providers info and my user name/password and let you try it??

    That might help; at least I could find out whether Fetch 4.0.2 (currently under development) fixes this problem.

    I would like to add that you may have to reboot your machine to make this take affect. It works for me... If I make my ethernet connection active (to use a network printer) along with my modem, I have too reboot to make Fletch work. I have faith that Jim will fix this...
