    I can login, but when trying to upload I get a too many perameters error. Regardless of the server I post to.
    Heres the transcript.

    Hi,

    When you use the Put command, change the setting of the "If a file already exists:" menu to "Replace existing file". Do not use "Pick a different name".

    When this menu is set to "Pick a different name", Fetch sends the "STOU" command to the server (asking the server to give your file a unique name to make sure it does not replace an existing file). Some servers do not support the "STOU" command, and give these errors as a result.

    Let us know if this does not fix the problem or if you have further questions.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    Hi,

    Could you please send us a transcript of your attempt to upload when you use the "Replace existing file" option? We'll take a look to see if there is another suggestion we can make.

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    I think you should try deleting your Fetch preferences file and see if that fixes the problem.

    Doing this will not delete your shortcuts; it will, however, erase your list of recent connections (the ones that appear under the clock icon in the New Connection dialog), so if your recent connections are important to you and you do not think you can easily recreate them, please follow the instructions below to move the preferences to your desktop instead of the Trash, so they can be recovered.

    Please do the following:

    * Quit Fetch.
    * Choose "Home" from the Go menu in the Finder
    * Open the Library folder
    * Open the Preferences folder
    * Find the com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.plist and Fetch Prefs, and move them to the Desktop.
    * Run Fetch.
    * Try uploading again - if you use the Put command, do not make any changes in the Put dialog (besides selecting the file to upload). If you upload by using drag and drop, just drag and drop as normal.

    Let us know if that helps or not.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire
