    I have had a recurring problem with Fetch 3.0.3, and now it still occurs in the 4.0 betas (I just checked with .b5). Let's say someone emails me an attachment, which I receive with Eudora Pro 4.3, or I download a file to home using IE 5.0. In each case the Get Info box of the file gets stamped. Eudora stamps it with the address of the sender, IE stamps it with the URL of the download. Then I turn around and try to upload this file from home to my office Mac, a low-end G4 running OS 9.1 and NetPresenz 4.1. The upload completes, then aborts with the following message:

    Server response: Connection aborted, local error (-302).

    I find that this happens ALWAYS with any file in which some text has been entered into the Get Info box, but never happens when that box is clear. I can of course remember to do Get Info and delete any text there, and that is my workaround. But I often forget, and this is really irritating if it is a very large file.

    I have noticed that I can upload files with text in the GetInfo box to unix ftp servers, so perhaps this is a problem with NetPresenz, not with Fetch. At any rate, if you are aware of this problem and have any other suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate hearing them. I'll check this MB to see if there is a response.

    In the meantime, I am very positively impressed with the upgrade to Fetch.

    When an error message says "local error" that means that it's the server side (in this case NetPresenz) that's encountering the error. My guess is that NetPresenz is having a problem trying to save the "Get Info" string. You might contact Interarchy (at about that, or try a different FTP server (such as Rumpus).
