    Using Fetch 4.0 when I call up my file listing I get, in part, the following transcript:

    SYST
    215 WIN32 A N (WFTPD by Texas Imperial Software)
    PWD
    257 "/" is current directory
    MACB ENABLE
    502 Command MACB ENABLE not implemented yet on this server
    PWD

    The list appears, but the dog keeps running. When I hit "stop" I get:

    ABOR
    CStreamOT::Read() OTRcv() returned -3208
    225 ABOR command successful (nothing to abort!)

    The tech folks at my server said they have NT Service Pack 6a. I've also tried with the PASV box checked and unchecked.

    A bigger problem is that I have several files that when I try to download them, they show that they are downloaded but the dog keeps running, while the bytes/s drops slowly toward zero. The transcript reads "Transfer finished successfully," but I never get the "Download completed" message. I cannot view these same files on IE on my Mac--Netscape can view them but the status bar continues to run. While these particular files have problems, others do not.

    Thanks for the help,
    Craig

    There is a known problem with NT 4 Service Pack 6 and Mac clients; for more information see this article: http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q244/5/39.asp

    One workaround is to replace the tcpip.sys file on the server with the one from Service Pack 5.

    Jim-

    Thanks again for the info.

    I have a couple more questions:
    1-Is "MACB ENABLE / 502 Command MACB ENABLE not implemented yet on this server" in the transcript a sign of the problem?
    2-Is there a downside for the server to downgrade to the tcpip.sys from Service Pack 5? Would they be reluctant to do this?

    The MACB message should be irrelevant. If you like you can turn off that command with the SetSecretOptions script that comes with Fetch.

    I would definitely keep a copy of tcpip.sys, but this recommendation came from Microsoft, so it should be safe.

    we were having the same problem with lists hanging and file transfers not finishing. it happened to us after we had two t1s installed. the problem would go away if we unplugged one of them. replacing the tcpip.sys file with the one that came with service pack 5 definately fixed our problem. we have seen no adverse effects from doing this.
