    Hi,

    It looks like the server is rejecting passive mode connections for some reason; possibly it has been moved behind a firewall.

    I would try the following:

    * Turn off your OS X firewall (I see you started with it off, but then turned it on).
    * Go to the General pane of Fetch Preferences and uncheck "Use passive mode transfers."
    * Try connecting again.

    Let us know if that works or not.

    Thanks,

    Scott McGuire

    Hi Scott

    That did it ;o) thanks a lot!

    But does that mean i have to set the OSX firewall to off every time i want to connect to the above server?

    Hi Lyden,

    Yes, unfortunately it does mean that. Active mode connections cannot work when you have a firewall on your end (the replies from the FTP server cannot get back to you through your firewall).

    You might want to contact your client and see if they can set up the server to support SFTP connections; using SFTP avoids most of the firewall and NAT problems.

    Thanks, and let us know if you have any more questions.
