    Just downloaded and paid for the Fetch program. First time launching I get

    "An FTP connection to "MY HOSTNAME" could not be opened because the connection timed out. "

    There might be a problem with your network, or the server might not be responding.

    Do I need a stronger Wi-Fi signal possibly

    If you are able to browse the web from that computer the problem probably isn't your Wi-Fi signal strength. I would double-check that the hostname is correct. If it is, I would try restarting your cable modem (or whatever device connects you to the Internet). If it still doesn't work please contact me at for more help.
