    I'm having a problem when uploading to my Earthlink's ftp server. I have a DSL account with them. Everytime I attempt to upload a small file, it acts like it's going to copy, but just stalls, and never finishes. I'm going through an Xsense, (previously Macsense) router. Is this possible to use with my router. Earthlink uses "Reverse DNS look-up" to verify that a user is an Earthlink customer. And apparently my router, (MIH-130 XRouter Pro) does not support this. Also, I'm using Fetch 3.03, and OS 9.1 Macintosh. I can FTP on other sites fine, just not earthlink. Any suggestions?

    Can you upload the same files to the incoming folder on (leave the User ID and Password fields blank when you connect)?

    Have you tried connecting your Mac directly to the DSL modem (rather than via the Macsense router) to see if that makes any difference?
