    I am relatively new to building web pages - I am using fetch to upload my pages to the web. One page still works - the second page does not connect and I get the response: can't open data connection. It was working and now it is not. I have done nothing different. I tried the suggestions from the 10/14 post with no luck. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after you get the error? Choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu.

    Thanks,

    You might try unchecking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences. What does the transcript look like in that case?
