    I'm trying to upload a .zip file. I can connect via ftp and it begins the process of putting the file then gives me the message: Fetch could not put APROPOS.zip because the ftp server send an unexpected response. Server responded 'STOU APROPOS.zip': Invalid number of parameters

    Please advise. Thanks, Susanne

    Hi Suzanne,

    When you are uploading the file, try setting the "If a file alraedy exists" menu to "Replace existing file" instead of "Pick a different name."

    The "Pick a different name" option sends a command (STOU) that your server apparently doesn't support.

    Let us know if that doesn't solve the problem.

    Thanks,

    I'm having the STOU problem when duplicating a file. How can this be solved? Strangely, this behaviour started some days ago, apparently something was changed on the server.

    Hi close,

    We'd like some more information to help diagnose the problem. Could you please do the following?

    * Quit Fetch.
    * Open Fetch again.
    * Connect to your server.
    * Duplicate a file.
    * Go to the Window menu, and choose Fetch Transcript.
    * Copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them into a reply to this message.

    We'll take a look and try to provide advice.

    Thanks,

    Hi close,

    Unfortunately, this appears to be a limitation of the server. It looks like the server does not support the STOU command (or has a problem that is preventing it from working correctly), and support for the STOU command is required for Fetch's Duplicate command to work properly.

    So, you may want to contact the folks who run the server and have them look into this problem, since it used to work.

    One workaround - although it's not very convenient - would be to copy the file to another folder on the server, rename it there, and copy it back to the original folder. When dragging a file to another folder in the Fetch window, you can hold down the option key while dragging to copy it instead of moving it. You must copy it to another folder, though, because if you try to copy it inside the same folder, that is the same as doing a duplicate.

    We're sorry that we do not have a better answer for you. Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    Hi Scott,
    Well thanks for your thorough reply. It's my wife's university site where something must have been changed in the last weeks. She will contact the administrators. We use a similar method for duplicating by dragging it to the desktop, renaming and uploading again.
    Thanks again!
