    I just upgraded from Mac OSX 10.2.8 to 10.3.2. Now Fetch delivers the message "Error. There is no host by that name", whatever site I try to connect to. I installed the Kerberos, and all my other web connections work fine. Who can help?

    Could you choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu and post the contents after you get that error? My guess is that there's a problem with your proxy settings.

    Note: there's no need to install the Kerberos software unless you know you are connecting to a Kerberos FTP server (e.g. at a university).

    Thanks,

    We are having the smae issue - though it seems to be Panther specific. Same settings same version (either .2 or .3) work fine on Jaguar, but show issues on Panther.

    Similar script message to those posted in all of these threads.

    tbrey:

    Try unchecking "Use EPSV instead of PASV" in the Obscure Options pop-up menu in the Misc. section of Fetch Preferences. Does that work any better?

    Thanks,

    I unchecked "Use EPSV instead of PASV", but no improvement (wether if PASV in system settings are enabled or not)

    unchecking "Use EPSV instead of PASV" did not help, neither with PASV in system settings enabled or disabled.

    Is the "Proxy Type" pop-up menu in the Firewall section of Preferences set to "None", or something else?

    Thanks,

    Hello Jim,

    that one is it!
    Proxy type in Fetch/Preferences/Firewall was set to Socks 4.3 with a strange proxy host name/port.
    Setting proxy type to "None" solved my problem.

    Thank you very much,
    Tom
