    I am trying to use Fetch to upload to my host.

    The service is a free email/website package, I use another broadband connection.

    I have Norton Firewall installed, but this problem is the same when I turn it off.

    I can open my connection, see all my files, and start to load up. If I transfer a folder I can then see the folder, but no contents. With a single file, I see nothing.

    I have searched though this help site, but found no answers. I have tried with and without automatic transfer, and turned on the Passive Mode preference.

    I have clicked off the MacBinary option, thinking that was maybe what "MACB ENABLE" refered to.

    The error message I get is "SERVER RESPONSE: Requested action not permitted."

    Here is the transcript from Fetch 4.01 (MacOS 9.1) after trying to upload a folder called "images".

    It could be that the server objects to one or more of the characters in the name of the file you are uploading. You might try uploading a file named a.jpg -- does that work?

    That seems to eliminate the file name as a problem. I would contact powertech.no and ask them to look into a permission problem with your account on their server.

    Hi Jim
    I finally got a response from my support people, they say they have checked out the site, and there are no problems.
    I have discovered I get the same error with other ftp-sites too, so I tend to believe them.
    I have restarted with only Mac OS 9.1 extensions, and no firewall at all. Same error, see transcript below.
    The strange thing I can see is the line with reference to 'MACB ENABLE': command not understood. This comes from other ftp servers too, with slightly different language.
    Ideas?

    The MACB command is just to find out whether the server supports it -- it does not explain the error that the server is giving when you try to upload.

    My best guess is that the owner id of your server folders is set incorrectly, denying you permission to save files. You could try uploading with a different FTP client (such as Vicom's, available from www.vicomsoft.com) to confirm that it isn't a problem with your FTP client.

    Thanks,
