    we're trying to set up an ftp server to allow people remote access to their home directories on our novell network.

    we're running the 5.1 ftp server.

    When I try to connect with fetch, the filenames show up named as the user who owns them, and the permissions, but if you try to click on a file or director, instead of opening it, it says file not found.

    I've had plenty of luck connecting to this ftp server using other ftp clients, but for some reason fetch isn't working. Anyone have any ideas?

    Fetch does not recognize that sort of file list. Do you mind posting a complete transcript, so that I can see how it answers the SYST and PWD commands?

    Also, does it do any good to refresh the file list (choose Refresh File List from the Directories menu)?

    Thanks,

    Thanks -- that helps. Does refreshing the file list make any difference?

    Refresh seemed to fix it. When I tried to log back in again, it was fine.

    Is there a reason why this is happening? Some of our users aren't particularly computer savvy, and error messages can be disconcerting. I assume the problem is netware being stupid, but it's what we have to use.

    (PS, if you're done with the log, let me know, I'd like to delete it)

    Thanks for such a quick response to this!

    Fetch thinks that the server will respond with a UNIX-format file list, but after it sees a file list it knows better.

    Thanks for the information -- you can delete the transcript whenever you like.
