    Trying to connect to an NT server, I keep getting "error -20002." The transcript indicates I'm connecting, and my password works:

    220 web2 Microsoft FTP Service (Version 5.0).
    USER gwb3m
    331 Password required for gwb3m.
    230-Welcome to the Micro Systems FTP Service

    The frustrating part is, the FTP on my Winduhs machine connects to this server without a problem. (I hate when Windows actually works!)

    Is there an NT server setting that blocks non-Windows logins?

    Any suggestions?

    That means that the server sent a line of text that is longer than 255 characters. Fetch 4.0 will not have this problem, so you might want to try 4.0b5 (which is currently available for testing).

    I downloaded the 4.0 beta and it worked perfectly. Take that NT! I am a happy Mac user again.

    I've been a Fetch user for at least four years, and am very glad to see this update. I like its revamped look & feel.

    I look forward to buying the final version. Thanks much.
