    I have problems connecting to my server on OSX (dog just keeps on running) but if I change my operating system to OS9 it runs fine. Any ideas to solve the problem in OSX?

    You should uncheck the "User Internet Config" box in the General section of Preferences, and check the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences. That works around a Fetch bug on X.

    I have tried this and it still doesn't work, should I re-install the software or delete some preference file?

    Could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window? It's listed in the Window menu.

    Thanks,

    Apparently the server does not support passive mode. Another thing to try is unchecking "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" in the Firewall section of Preferences, and disabling all but one of the network interfaces in the Active Network Ports list in the Network pane of System Preferences.
