    I still get the message "Server response: Illegal PORT command rejected" even after I have set "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences. I am using MAC's OSX and Fetch 4.0.1.

    What should I do next to resolve this issue? I would appreciate an immedidate response since I an unable to upload files to my website?

    Thanks!

    Did you also uncheck "Use Internet Config" in the General section of Preferences?

    Jim,
    The "Use Internet Config" option is unchecked in the General section of Preferences. I am still getting the same error. What should I do next?
    Thanks,
    Doug

    Could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after seeing the problem?

    I'm not sure what you mean by transcript but I did copy these message:

    The transcript shows Fetch using the PORT command; that indicates that the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences is not checked. Could you check that box, and make a new connection?

    Thanks,
