    had to reinstall fetch recently and trying to setup a new connection i keep getting this:

    Is the password field being filled out for you automatically? If so, the password is being pulled from your keychain and perhaps the keychain entry is out of date for some reason.

    If the password is being filled out automatically, I'd try typing it in manually and connected. If that works, try connecting again, entering your password manually, and checking the Add to keychain checkbox to save the correct password in the keychain again.

    If that doesn't appear to be the case, double-check that you have the correct username and password - I realize that seems like a silly suggestion, but the server is rejecting one of the two.

    If these suggestions don't help, let us know. Thanks,
