    I am trying to use Fetch to send pdfs to my printer. My machine is running Mac OS X, 10.3.5. I can connect to the site but when I try to transfer a file, I get speeds of about 400 bytes/s and it says it will take hours to transfer. What am I doing wrong? I have regular dialup.

    Do you get better speeds connecting to other servers? For example, you can connect to ftp.fetchsoftworks.com (leave the User ID and Password fields blank) and upload files to the incoming folder (ignore the permission error you see when you enter that folder).

    Thanks,

    Thanks for responding. I restarted my computer and the speeds got up to about 800-1200/s. I did a test to your site and got about the same speed. My dialup is VERY bad. I am posting a new message about using Fetch with satellite internet. I am considering getting satellite internet and am wondering if there are others out there who have used Fetch with satellite and if there any special considerations...Thank you

    I used to use satellite Internet, and I would usually get about 5KB/s uploads (this is with Hughes DirecWay).

    Thanks,
