    I have setup my FTP server in a DMZ and as part of the security have set port filtering to accept only port 21 traffic. My PC clients can connect via their software but Fetch clients connect but cannot retrieve a file list. Are there specific ports that need to be opened for Fetch clients?

    Have your Fetch clients tried changing the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" checkbox in the Firewall section of Preferences (they probably want to uncheck that box to connect to your server)? Are your Fetch clients running firewall software?

    Thanks,

    Yes, these are the first things that I checked. The firewall in OSX is not active and we have toggled back and forth on PASV mode. I use to have this server on the other side of a symantec firewall appliance but had to move it to the DMZ as I was getting inconsistant behavior. The FTP server software is Ipswitch.

    Could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after an attempt to connect, as well as a transcript from a PC connection? It might be useful to compare the two.
