    I have a DSL account (ethernet modem) set up using OS X 10.1.3. I recently downloaded the OS X version of Fetch and tried to log in to my FTP account. (I have been using fetch for eight years or so to up load my web pages). Anyway, I typed in my password info, etc... (that works in the version I have installed on OS 9) and Fetch logs in, but continues to try to get the file list ad naseum. I tried clicking on the factory shortcuts and Fetch does the same thing...logs in, but won't get the file list. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks

    Try unchecking "Use Internet Config" in the General section of Preferences and checking "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" in the Firewall section of Preferences. Does that help?

    Thanks,

    Yes! it worked. Thanks very much. I'd been using Fetch since 1994, god knows I'd hate to go something else.

    Yes it worked but I got an error for one of the servers "Server Responce: Can't open data connection". Any idea what that is?

    But clicking on the firewire PASV did do the trick for my website server!! :)

    Thanks!

    It could be that the server in question does not support passive mode transfers. 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.

    I have the same problem but not resolved with the changes suggested in this post. While I can still use 3.0.3, i would rather switch to OSX version.

    I have:
    OSX 10.1.3 on desktop with Fetch 4.0.1
    Classic with Fetch 3.0.3
    connecting to an ASIP 6.3 ftp service

    Here's a transcript;

    And it does not work with passive mode transfers turned on?
