    An FTP connection to “” could not be opened because the FTP server sent an unexpected response. (Check the Fetch Transcript window for more information.
    Server responded: “Sorry, the maximum number of connections (10) for your host are already connected.”)

    Hi Bill,

    As I wrote on the other thread, the server is saying that it only supports 10 connections at a time, and there are currently 10 users connected. I would try again later. You can tell Fetch to keep trying by entering a number in the "Try to connect __ times" field in the New Connection dialog (click on the down-facing triangle to reveal that field). Fetch will try as many times as you specify, pausing 5 seconds between attempts.
