Putting Files Gets Stuck in Endless Loop (15 posts)

    I recently installed the latest update (Fetch 5.6), and I've been having problems putting files. When I go to put a file on my server (either by clicking and dragging or using the "Put" command) it adds the file, but once it's finished it starts over again resulting in an endless loop of file uploads. When I abort and refresh, the filename appears but it's an empty file (file size says 0 bytes). I've tried quitting and re-opening Fetch and restarting my computer to no avail.

    I'm running MacOSX 10.6.3 on a Macbook over an wireless/ethernet connection on a Linksys Wireless-G Cable Gateway.

    P.S. Sometimes it aborts itself, and I get the following error message:

    Fetch could not put "filename.pdf" because the SFTP server says a command failed.

    If you entered a file name, folder name, or URL, check that it is correct; or contact the server administrator for assistance.

    Hi Aaron and Karl,

    We're sorry to hear you're having problems. Fetch should not go in an infinite loop; it should retry three times and then give up. Regardless, we'll try to figure out what is going on and why Fetch is retrying at all.

    We'd like some more information to help diagnose the problem. Could you please do the following?

    * Quit Fetch, if it's running.
    * Open Fetch again.
    * Connect to your server.
    * Try uploading again.
    * Let Fetch retry 4-5 times, or until you receive an error, whichever happens first.
    * Then go to the Window menu, and choose Fetch Transcript.
    * Copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them into an email to bugs@fetchsoftworks.com .

    Thanks,

    Just as a follow up here - we determined that Aaron's problem was the result of being him out of space ("quota") in his account on his server.

    Fetch shouldn't go into an infinite loop in that case normally - it should try three times and give up - but Aaron's server was sending back anomalous replies that misrepresented the situation. We'll try to fix this behavior if we can, but we believe this is a very rare case and very few users are likely to encounter it; this is a special situation with Aaron's server.

    So, if Fetch does get stuck in an endless loop of retries, please do contact us so we can figure out why, but you should also check and make sure you aren't out of space on the server.

    I have the exact same problem. And I have plenty of space on my server...

    We'll take a look and try to figure out what's going on.

    Hi. I'm having similar issues. On 2 of my computers, I'm able to upload without problem. My 3rd computer WAS uploading no problem, but recently stopped working.

    I've reinstalled Fetch (and am now trying with a trial version,) and am still unable to upload.
    I'm able to download, but not upload.

    I'll attach a transcript, and would appreciate any suggestions. Thank you!

    Hi Cyndi,

    It looks like there is either a problem with your Internet connection, or with your server account at Dreamhost. I would suggest the following:

    1. First, try restarting your Mac, and trying to upload again.
    2. If that does not work, try restarting your DSL or cable modem and wireless base station (if you are using one)
    3. If the upload is still failing, try connecting to ftp.fetchsoftworks.com (leave the Username and Password fields blank). Then enter the "incoming" folder; you will see an alert about a permissions error, which you can ignore. Then try uploading your file.

    If the upload in step 3 succeeds, I would recommend talking to Dreamhost about the problem, since it appears to be specific to their server. If that upload fails I would contact your Internet Service Provider.

    Thanks,

    Jim,
    I finally had the time to try what you suggested. I appreciate your willingness to work with me on this.

    I tried several times to upload a very small file. Every time except for once, it said I didn't have the required permissions. The one time that it acted like it was really attempting to upload, it acted the same way that it has been with the Dreamhost server.

    I realize that you suggested continuing this issue with others, depending on the result of this test, but I'm not sure what the result of this test was! The "no permissions" thing sounds like something else went wrong, but I just don't understand the lingo. I'll attach the transcript in hopes of receiving insight from your keen eye. Thanks!

    ===
    PS- I don't think this matters, but it may be worth mentioning again...
    I'm attempting to upload from my G5 server via "screen sharing" on my regular G5 shooting computer. I can upload fine from my regular G5 shooting computer, but NOT with the server. I used to be able to upload this way with absolutely no problem.

    Hi Cyndi,

    Your results with our FTP server are unexpected; they aren't errors we would normally expect to see our server give, and they do seem unrelated to your problem. So yes, the results of that test are inconclusive.

    I think the best thing to do is try with our server again. I've done some cleanup on the server and run some tests and I was unable to duplicate the errors you were seeing, so hopefully you won't see them the next time either.

    Please quit Fetch, and then open it again and try to upload to ftp.fetchsoftworks.com using the instructions Jim gave above, and let us know what happens (please post a transcript again), then we'll advise further.

    Sorry for making you run the tests a second time.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    It actually tried this time, but it's still not working. The first attempt appears to be the exact thing that has been happening the last few months. It says it's uploading, but stalls as soon as it starts.
    Thank you for your attention!

    ===
    Jim,
    I finally had the time to try what you suggested. I appreciate your willingness to work with me on this.

    I tried several times to upload a very small file. Every time except for once, it said I didn't have the required permissions. The one time that it acted like it was really attempting to upload, it acted the same way that it has been with the Dreamhost server.

    I realize that you suggested continuing this issue with others, depending on the result of this test, but I'm not sure what the result of this test was! The "no permissions" thing sounds like something else went wrong, but I just don't understand the lingo. I'll attach the transcript in hopes of receiving insight from your keen eye. Thanks!

    ===
    PS- I don't think this matters, but it may be worth mentioning again...
    I'm attempting to upload from my G5 server via "screen sharing" on my regular G5 shooting computer. I can upload fine from my regular G5 shooting computer, but NOT with the server. I used to be able to upload this way with absolutely no problem.

    Hi Cyndi,

    Okay, in that case, it sounds like there's a problem with your cable/DSL modem or Internet connection that is preventing FTP uploads from working properly. (Even though email and web browsing may be working fine, there are certain problems that can affect just FTP.) You should contact your Internet provider and ask them to look into it. Be sure to tell them that you are having problems uploading to several different servers.

    Please let us know if you have questions after talking to them.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    FYI- I changed my service provider to Time Warner (from Clear.) The change was already in the works, and to be honest, I didn't think that would change anything, but it sure did. I have no clue why it suddenly stopped working after working fine the previous year+, but I sure am glad it's fixed now.

    Thanks for your time!

    Hi Cyndi,

    Glad to hear things are working again with the new service provider, thanks for letting us know.

    Please let us know if we can be of assistance again in the future.

    Best,
