    I have a linux proftp server ports 21 and 20, behind a freebsd nat firewall open ftp range 15000 >< 16500,

    no problems with unix or windows clients, but mac client using fetch cannot get list from server..

    The client tried already unchecking the "Use Internet Config" box in the General section of Preferences and turning passive mode on and off.

    And aslo tried using another ftp client like netfind, same thing.

    Then he tried closing all active ports ecept the one he uses for the internet.

    Still no list..

    Can you please help, I don't know what else to tell him,

    Could it be that it fetch needs a different ftp range open on firewall, thats what it seems like to me.

    Here is the clients transcript:

    System Version = 0x1012
    Connecting to XXXXXXX.com port 21 (1/21/02 11:30:09 PM)
    220 ProFTPD 1.2.2 Server (ProFTPD)
    ADAT
    500 ADAT not understood.
    USER webby
    331 Password required for webby.
    PASS
    230 User webby logged in.
    SYST
    215 UNIX Type: L8
    PWD
    257 "/" is current directory.
    MACB ENABLE
    500 MACB not understood.
    PWD
    257 "/" is current directory

    My windows and unix clients have no problems connecting and using my ftp server. And this client is not behind a firewall or proxy..

    It would be useful to see a transcript where "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" was checked.

    Thanks,

    I was receiving an Invalid Port Command error message, but Fetch was loging in correctly. Checking the Customize -> Preferences -> Firewall -> Use Passive Mode worked for me. Thanks

    Here you go:

    System Version = 0x1012
    Connecting to XXXX.com port 21 (1/22/02 9:02:00 PM)
    220 ProFTPD 1.2.2 Server (ProFTPD)
    ADAT
    500 ADAT not understood.
    USER webby
    331 Password required for webby.
    PASS
    230 User webby logged in.
    SYST
    215 UNIX Type: L8
    PWD
    257 "/" is current directory.
    MACB ENABLE
    500 MACB not understood.
    PWD
    257 "/" is current directory.
    PASV

    I even change the port range back to the ICAA recommended range of 49152 >< 65534

    One question, does fetch use icmp for any reason? I have all icmp protocol atttempts blocked?

    well, I've had reports that "fetch" is not happy if it can't work out the full
    file name on the remote site. If your ftp daemon does a chroot then, of
    course, fetch can't see above the 'new' root directory and complains.
    do you think this is what is happening?

    I also seen somewhere that Fetch may use ls -l to retrieve the file lists, so I double checked /bin/ls and i have no problem doing a ls -l on console?

    Today I have made a few adjustments to my system and the client reported this:

    System Version = 0x1012
    Connecting to XXXXXX.com port 21 (1/23/02 3:44:02 AM)
    220 ProFTPD 1.2.2 Server (ProFTPD)
    ADAT
    500 ADAT not understood.
    USER webby
    331 Password required for webby.
    PASS
    230 User webby logged in.
    SYST
    215 UNIX Type: L8
    PWD
    257 "/" is current directory.
    MACB ENABLE
    500 MACB not understood.
    PWD
    257 "/" is current directory.
    PORT 0,109,223,144,90,149

    But still no file list??

    I think you mentioned a test account earlier in the thread, but I don't see that information. Could you email it to support@fetchsoftworks.com?

    Fetch does not use ICMP.
