    Most of the time when I try to connect to ftp sites I get no connection. One server does seem to connect, but slowly, and list files. Another server connects but lists no files.

    Here is a transcript of a session where I connected but no files were listed, and also several other failed attempts:

    Thank you.

    One thing you can try is unchecking the "Use Internet Config" box in the General section of Preferences and checking the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences.

    That might help with the file list problem. As for the not-connecting problem, you'll probably need to consult with the firewall administrator for suggestions.

    Thanks,

    I check the PASV box in the Firewall section of Preferences, but I have to do it everytime I start fetch. Is there anyway to make the default?

    Unchecking "Use Internet Config" in the General section of Preferences should let your changes to the PASV setting stick.
