Need help with FTP to SFTP tunnel/bridge using MindTerm (2 posts)

Our ISP requires that our FTP access be secure. We've been using MacSFTP (www.macssh.com), but some tweak at their end has made that client unusable. A technician at the ISP has recommended AppGate's "MindTerm", available at info-center.ccit.arizona.edu/~consult/mac-mindt.html#mindt-inst.
I have followed its installation intructions, and its instructions for running Fetch through a tunnel set up by MindTerm, both on the mac-mindt.html page and on mac-fetch.html.
However the connection is not working. MindTerm sees Fetch's request, and logs it as
** SSH2Channel : 'open confirmation, ch. #1, init-winsz = 0, max-pktsz = 32768'
and Fetch reports "Error: the server dropped the connection (it may be too busy)." The transcript gives no more information:
Connecting to 127.0.0.1 port 21 (4/24/03 12:45:19 PM)
I would gladly accept:
Suggestions for making Fetch work with MindTerm
Suggestions for other SSH clients that Fetch can tunnel with
Here are my details:
Fetch version 4.0.2, Mac OS 9.2.2
Shortcut definition (as per MindTerm's instructions):
Name= ftp tunnel
Yes: Use Internet Config
Yes: Display server messages
Yes: Keep connections active
Yes: Use passive mode transfers
Proxy type= None
(Other proxy fields are blank)
Yes: Use "Type I"; Translate ISO chars; Show New Connection at startup.
No: all others
Obscure Options: all unselected
Yes: Warn before cleartext password; Kerberos v5 tickets; dummy password; GSS channel bindings
No: Warn before insecure password; Check protection level.

I have not used the MindTerm SFTP gateway, but I can point you to instructions on using Fetch with MacSSH:
Let me know if that does not help.
