    Jim. I used Fetch very successfully for about 2 months after purchasing in in the fall. I have a PowerPC with OS 8.6 hooked to a Linksys cable/DSL router with my Windows machine, running ME. Initial set up was easy and all was well until one day I received this message when trying to view the Win hard drive:

    Error: You do not have permission to take that action.

    Fetch tells me I am connected but I get the above message when I try to see the win drive. Although I do not recall having made any "password" or other config changes to either machine at or around that time, perhaps that is the case (I have a gaming addict 13 year old, who is often downloading/upgrading his games, so heaven only knows what might have happened....). Also, the IP config from the Win machine still seems the same..

    I have found a couple of posts on this site about this little issue, but no response which seems to get to the bottom of the problem. I include some of a recent transcript which seems to indicate when/what the problem is. I wonder if my ISP has changed something?...

    Any help, greatly appreciated. Fetch is just too neat a program and great a help to me to lose now ...

    It looks like the configuration of the Serv-U FTP server on your Windows computer was changed to not allow anonymous access to the top level of the C: drive. You should be able to change the Serv-U configuration on the Windows side (I would recommend setting up a userid and password, and restricting access to that userid and password).
