    Please help. I am using Fetch FTP 4.0.2 on Mac OS 10.4.2.

    When I try to connect I get the message:

    Error: The server dropped the connection (it may be too busy)

    I don't know why. I have changed computers and moved abroad but my Fetch settings remain the same. I have never had any problems with different version of Fetch on many different operating systems.

    I saw that someone else seemed to have this same problem and posted it on the list but there was not an answer. Jim Matthews asked for the contents of the Fetch Transcripts from the window menu. Here are mine:

    Fetch 4.0.2 System 0x1042 Serial FETCHED001-K056-Q835 TR

    Any help you can give me would be very much appreciated.

    It looks like there's a problem with the server; I can't connect to it either. So I would contact the server administrator at the university.
