    I'm using Fetch 4.0.1 on OS X.1.3. I can connect and upload/download just fine, however, after a few minutes, the connection is dropped, citing Open Transport Error -3199. What I am doing at the time seems to have no effect on the error's occurrence (uploading, downloading, doing nothing). I've tried switching between active and passive mode and turning 'use internet config' on and off, both to no avail. What does this error mean? I'm currently forced to switch to OS 9 for my Fetching needs.

    That's a new one to me. I'd be curious to see a transcript, with passive mode on and use Internet Config off.

    Thanks,

    Try turning on your passive file transfers. I used to have this problem all the time. Turning on Passive (PASV) in the firewall section of your preferences might help.

    Switching to passive mode was the first thing I tried. Unfortunately in this case it was not a magic bullet.

    It could be that the server is dropping the connection because it does not like the NOOP command. You can tell Fetch to not send the NOOP command by running this AppleScript:

    tell application "Fetch 4.0.1"
    set dont send NOOP to true
    end tell

    Does that help any?
