    I am on a Mac G4 - OS 10.3.3 - Fetch 4.0.3 at home.
    Trying to connect to Unix server (office) getting message "Server file error: data transfer not implemented for client default data port. Need PORT command first."

    Is there a way to enter port command in Fetch? or is the problem with office server? How can I connect? Is there a command or something I can enter in Fetch or on the server?

    Could you choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu and post the contents after you dismiss that error dialog? It may contain clues to the problem.

    Thanks,

    I had fetch V 3.0.3 and was able to connect fine using Classic OS 9.2.
    Same computer. Same server. Same FTP address.
    It's only when I upgraded to Fetch 4.0.3 that I could no longer connect.

    I will post Fetch Transcript tonight.

    This is a known problem in Fetch 4.0.3 that comes up connecting to Snap servers. One workaround is to uncheck "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" in the Firewall section of Fetch Preferences. Please send an email to bugs at fetchsoftworks.com if that does not help.

    Thanks,
