    Fetch 3.0.3 will work on my Mac at work, but Fetch 4.0.3 just hangs at "connecting" and after about a minute comes back with "Error -1".

    Could you choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu and post the contents after you dismiss that error message? It might also help to post a transcript from Fetch 3.0.3 for comparison's sake.

    Thanks,

    After I posted yesterday, I couldn't get Fetch 3.0.3 to launch (classic environment problem I think) ... today it opened fine and let me into my server.

    Not sure why Fetch 4.0.3 won't.

    Here is the transcript from logging on with 3.

    One thing to try is choosing "Preferences..." from the Fetch menu (in Fetch 4.0.3), clicking the Firewall tab, and checking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" checkbox. Then open a new connection.

    If that does not work could you post the transcript?

    Thanks,

    Okay, that box was already checked. Here is the transcript:

    Connection dropped waiting for SOCKS reply

    BIG THANKS for your help, Jim!

    Try setting the Proxy Type to "None" (in the Firewall section of Preferences). Does that help?

    Thanks,
