    Hi,

    I'm trying to upload .ai files and .jpg files to an ftp site and I get the following response:
    "500 The server returned invalid response for PASV command.

    Here is the transcript info... Can you help me understand what this means?

    Thanks!

    Fetch could not get the file list because the FTP server sent an unexpected response. (Check the Fetch Transcript window for more information.)

    Hi,

    Please try the following:

    * Quit Fetch.
    * Open Fetch again.
    * Go to the Fetch menu, and choose Preferences.
    * Click the General tab.
    * Uncheck the "Use passive mode transfers" checkbox.
    * Then click the Miscellaneous tab.
    * Uncheck "Use 'LIST -al' command to reveal hidden files" the checkbox.
    * Try connecting again.

    If that does not fix the problem, please post another transcript.

    Thanks,
