    I am using os9.2.2 and looking for an ftp client that shows and allows the manipulation of invisible .prefix files, re:-

    My IP’s webspace is unix but comes with front page extensions as standard. These are _vti_xxx folders and to normal ftp viewing appear empty but contain .roles files. Unix will not allow _vit folders be deleted or moved as they are not empty.

    The same holds true for me wanting to manage my own protected directories. I can’t see all of the files on the server, the ones starting with a . (eg .htaccess) are not visible with my current ftp client and it tells me that the folder is empty.

    Does fetch enable the viewing and manipulation of .htaccess files?

    If not do you know of another mac ftp client can manage this simple task?

    Fetch can be configured to send a non-standard file list command, "LIST -al". That tells UNIX servers to show all files, including ones that start with a period. I would recommend downloading Fetch 4.0.2 from and checking the "Send LIST -al to UNIX Servers" option in the Obscure Options pop-up menu in the Misc section of Preferences.
