    I'm getting Error -37 on the Fetch 4.0 betas 7 & 8 (so far) when trying to download 'UniversalInterfaces3.4f2.img.bin' from Apple's Developer Connection FTP site (imercury1). Other files come down okay. It's the length of the filename that's causing this error.

    I have MacOS 9.1 and all the updates so far. I'm also using other ADC stuff like Carbonlib 1.3b5, QuickTime 5.0.1b19, etc. Thru several of these updates, the -37 error on Fetch 4.0 continues.

    Downloading this file does work with the Fetch 4.0 betas under OS-X. That's because it'll allow long-long filenames with the *nix infrastructure there. ;)

    Fetch 3.0.3 will download this file okay under MacOS 9.1 because it'll automatically truncate the filename before being created. If there is such a setting for Fetch 4.0, I can't find it.

    I never let Fetch do the decoding or text conversions, btw. I use 'binary' for everything, then use BBEdit Lite 4.6, Stuffit Deluxe 6.0.1, MacZip, etc. to do the rest of it.

    In case anyone is wondering how to use Fetch on ADC: Each time Fetch is updated, I'll get Internet Config to point to the new application name. iCab and Netscape are set up to use it as a "FTP Helper". They'll both pass my (encrypted) ADC userid & password on to Fetch, and that's the trick for using it to get the files from ADC. You stay connected, downloads are much faster, etc. ;)

    Thanks. -- Paul Seniura (in OkC)

    I have been unable to get 4.0b8 to work with the Apple private developer web site. I am using Fetch as a helper for IE 5.1 PR on Mac OS X. Any time that Fetch is called or launched to handle an ftp url, the Fetch application terminates.

    I can use Fetch to access without any problems. The problem occurs when IE invokes Fetch as the ftp helper. I checked the preference settings in IE 5.1 and everything looks fine.

    Thanks for reporting the -37 error; that's a bug that I'll fix.

    I'll look into the problem with using Fetch as an IE helper on Mac OS X.
