Can't connect for upload (3 posts)

    I have been using Fetch for several years without any issues at all. Thursday, I uploaded a new site to an .edu server from my desktop machine (hardwired) without any problems. Over the weekend I have made several updates to the site from my laptop (wireless) and went to upload the new edits this afternoon - for some reason I can't connect to the server and the connection times out.

    I called a friend and asked him to try the connection to verify that I had the correct username and password and he connected right away. Any ideas? The only thing I can see is that I have changed from an Ethernet cable to wireless - please help!!

    I see this is something that others have asked about before, so I tried to quit and reconnect without success. After trying again, I copied the contents of the Fetch Transcript and they are pasted below:

    Fetch 5.3 (5D161) Intel running on Mac OS X 10.4.11 (8S2167) Intel English
    StuffIt Engine 0x820, StuffIt SDK Version 10.1.1b1
    Partial serial FETCHED001-V40D-EK5F T
    Connecting to port 21 (Mac OS X firewall is off) (7/13/08 8:21:27 PM)

    Hopefully this helps in some way - is there is something I need to do with the firewall?

    Figured it out - I needed a VPN in case anyone else has this same issue.
