    I'm trying to use the script "DropUpload" which came with Fetch 4.0.1 under MacOS 9.1 on a PBG3p. I have configured the DropUpload with my user:password@host/path info alternatively by hand typing it and by dragging it from Fetch into a text editor and then copy and pasting that into the DropUpload dialog.

    I can get to my webhost and upload pages using the regular fetch connections but if I use DropUpload then I get the message:

    Can't get url "" of application "Fetch 4.0.1".

    The above url is direct from Fetch and works in a normal Fetch window (except the password, user, domain and IP have been changed :-).

    I've read through the FAQ, built in help and message boards (using search) but haven't found a solution. Any suggestions?

    The URL should start with the characters "ftp://". Does it work if you prepend that to the URL you are using?

    Prepending the ftp:// fixed it. How silly of me. I assumed it know that since it was a FTP program. :-) Thanks! -W
