    Hi,

    Firstly, I have just changed servers. I was with DirectNIC and now I am with Verve. The log in I am attempting is
    Hostname: 216.22.32.202
    the site is www.stevensteinman.com, but they gave me this number to upload until the transfer is complete.
    I can't connect.
    I have been looking through the boards and see post addressing the same problem I am having, but I have tried almost all of the things I could and still no go :()
    I am not in PASV mode and I have firewalls turned off...I think? Every time I try to connect I get :
    Error: The server dropped the connection. (It may be too busy)
    I have tied to change some things in preferences, but nothing works. I used to be able to connect fine until I upgraded :confused:
    I have also tried to get the "View File List" log to put on here for you, ( since I know you will ask), but "View File List" is grayed out!

    Some info...
    In my OS X Sharing Preferences, should I check anything in Services? FTP is set to off and nothing else is checked.
    In the Firewall tab, it is set to off. I know my new server said they needed port 20 and 21.
    In my Fetch Prefs, I have passive off as I said.
    Proxy Type is set to host name.
    Proxy Host is: ftp-proxy.t-online.de Port 80.

    I have a feeling something is entered wrong in my Proxy settings in Fetch and maybe on my network settings.
    Now I am getting the message: Error: the type of proxy server you have specified requires more information. The info...and so on.
    I am in Germany, but I had uploaded to DirectNIC just fine...on the OS 9.2 Fetch. And i can get into my hompage at t-online just fine with Fetch right now.

    Thank you,
    Steven

    I would start by setting "Proxy Type" to "None" in the Firewall section of Fetch Preferences. You only want to specify an FTP proxy server if you are on a network that only allows FTP through a proxy.

    Does that help?

    Thanks,
