    Sir,

    I am still able to connect with a frequently used server but am disconnected before I can accomplish any work. The disconnection usually happens immediately but I have been able to stay, on occaision, connected for several minutes and more.

    The server administrator has answered a few questions which may help:

    1. What operating system is driving the server? Windows 2000 server and Internet Information Server 5
    2. Descriptio of server hardware? Dell Server
    3. Recent IAVA patches installed? all Post service pack 3 patches

    The Fetch transcript log says:

    Does any other FTP client work from your machine to this server? It looks like the server is dropping the connection at random times. That isn't typical behavior for Fetch connections to Windows 2000 servers.

    Thanks,

    Jim,

    Yes, other FTP services work using IE browser
    on a PC and DOS FTP applications run in an MS DOS window. The problem appears to be specific to an Apple (Macintosh) computer running Fetch 4.0.2 and/or 4.0.3.

    I'd suggest trying a different Mac FTP client (such as Transmit, from http://www.panic.com) to see if the problem extends to other clients besides Fetch.

    Thanks,

    Jim,

    I tried Transmit and here's what the transcript says (from three attempts; one attempt got me into the directory, the others didn't):

    The conclusion I'd draw is that this is a problem with the server or network, and not the particular FTP client software on your Mac, because it affects both Fetch and Transmit. I would refer the problem to the network or server administrator.

    Thanks,
