    I'm trying to connect to one FTP server in particular. When I connect with Fetch 3.0.3, the wait cursor doesn't stop running, and I need to press cancel to move throw the directory structure or to download a file - which usually results in and error -3208.

    All other server seem to be ok. Any help? Here's the transcript of my log:

    Do you know if you are connecting through a proxy server?

    (Thanks for replying, Jim.)

    I have tried bypassing the proxy as well as going through the proxy, to no avail.

    To add some more details, using the FTP command from DOS on a PC works fine. As well, Fetch is the ONLY client that gets even as far as the above log indicates - other programs won't even get the directory listing - which is certainly a testament to Fetch's excellent programming.

    It sounds like a compatibility issue with the NT server's networking code. You might check to see if the server has all the recommended service packs installed. I'm not sure there's more I can do without a way to reproduce the problem.

    Thanks for the kind words,
