    Hi Shelly,

    Please try the following to see if it fixes your problem:

    * Go to the Fetch menu, and choose Preferences.
    * Click the Miscellaneous tab.
    * Uncheck the "Use 'LIST -al' command to reveal hidden files" checkbox.
    * Try connecting again.

    If this doesn't help, please let us know.
