Can't FTP - Please HELP! (2 posts)

    I have a client whose site is hosted at Yahoo. Prior to upgrading to Fetch 5.0.5, I had no issues FTP-ing. Now I have updates to post, and I can't get through. I get the "server has rejected the password" error, and I know it is correct.

    Here is the transcript:

    Fetch 5.0.5 (5A835) PowerPC running on Mac OS X 10.4.4 (8G32) PowerPC English
    StuffIt Engine 0x812, StuffIt SDK Version 10.0
    Partial serial FETCH5X001-8WVM-GYGS T
    Connecting to port 21 (OS X firewall is off) (2/21/06 9:13:37 PM)

    Hi Chuck,

    Thanks for including the transcript. Unfortunately all it shows is that the server rejected the password.

    Which version of Fetch were you using before you updated to Fetch 5.0.5? If it was Fetch 4.0.3, you can download it again from and try it to see if you can connect with it. If you can, please let us know so we can investigate why Fetch 5 is behaving differently.

    If it was an earlier version of Fetch 5, let us know and we'll see about getting you a copy of that version to try.
