    What ports do I have to enable/open Inbound/Outbound on my PIX Firewall for fetch to work?

    You shouldn't have to open any ports on the proxy server, since all your communication will be going through it. You would only have to open ports on the firewall if the proxy server is inside the firewall and does not have permission to talk through the firewall.

    The transcript shows the proxy server sending an error back to Fetch when Fetch tries to download a file list. Unfortunately the SOCKS protocol isn't very specific about errors: it just says there's a problem. Do other Mac FTP clients work through this SOCKS proxy?

    Thanks,

    Sorry about the long pause in replies I've been on vacation. We haven't tried any others a customer suggested this one so we were going to use it. The Proxy is behind the Firewall and only Port 80 and 25 are open to inbound/outbound. What ports have to be open for FTP? 20/21?

    Thank you

    I'd recommend opening all outbound ports, and checking "Use passive mode transfers" in the Firewall section of Fetch. Let me know if that doesn't work.

    Thanks,
