    I'm having the problem of not being able to get the list of files in my FTP directory.
    I'm connecting from OS 9.2 to OSX 10.2.

    Note, when I try connecting via the terminal on an OS X computer, I have no problems. But fetch doesn't work on OS 9 or X.

    I've tried it both with and without passive mode.

    Here's the transcript of my last attempt, this was with passive unchecked. The only difference when it is checked is I never get the "can't build data connection", it just hangs and hangs and hangs.

    Interesting.

    I just noticed that when I'm connected with passive mode unchecked, I can abort the file list and stay connected. I can move around my home computer, go into folders, etc. But I can never get a file list. I have to cancel everytime it tries to list, but I still stay connected.

    Can you connect and get a file list with command-line ftp? If so, could you type "debug" before typing "dir" (the file list command), and post the resulting transcript?

    Thanks,

    Sorry it has taken me so long to get back. Here's the transcript of an FTP session from the terminal on Mac OS X 10.2

    Any info appreciated. What is "extended passive mode"?

    EPSV (extended PASV) is a new version of the PASV command, but I don't understand why it would make a difference in this case.

    Do you have any firewall software running on your computer?

    Thanks,

    Firewall software – no. The only thing that is firewall-esque is that I have a router that is forwarding all traffic to my G4. So the IP I connect to is the router, not the actual G4.

    But, I don't have to change any settings in my OS X terminal to get connected.

    This is mysterious. Would you be willing to try a test release of Fetch to see if we could get more information about the problem?

    Thanks,
