Problem connecting from Intel Mac (5 posts)

    Using Fetch 5.0.5 on a G4 Powerbook I can connect without any problem. I'm now switching over to a MacBookPro, have installed Fetch and can't seem to connetc to any of the predefined shortcuts (Dartmouth etc) or my web server. I can still connect fine with the old Mac but not the MBPro despite the settings being the same.

    Here is the Transcript that fails:

    Any ideas please?

    Hi Mike,

    Please try Fetch 5.1b2, which is a Universal binary (and thus Intel native), on the MacBookPro and let us know if that fixes the problem or not.

    You can download it from <http://getfetch.com/Fetch_5.1b2.dmg> .

    Fetch 5.1 will be a free upgrade from Fetch 5.

    Thanks,

    To: Mike & Scott:

    I had a similar problem, with an identical solution. It turns out that MacSFTP has the same problem, or worse (it hangs). It is my understanding that these problems occur with the PowerPC versions because the Rosetta layer of Mac OSX gets in the way, changes the timing, etc. This is especially true for internal requests for services from the hardware layer.

    By the way, Intel Mac is also known as "MacIntel".
