    This is my problem, too.
    Any sign of a solution on the horizon, either from you or Apple?
    I do run Norton (but I gather from comments here, that that is not the problem).
    Never heard of Snitch.
    Problem started for me with Big Sur.
    Mac Mini; latest Fetch.

    Help, my website is getting out-of-date.

    Hi Richard,

    I suspect that Norton is the issue, if it shows up in the Network pane of System Preferences (which would indicate that it has loaded a Network Extension).

    I don't have a solution on the horizon, but I continue to work on the issue.

    Thanks,

    Jim Matthews

    Running Mac OS Big Sur (11.2.3 (20D91). Upgraded Fetch to 5.8.2 and now I am also not seeing directory listing reliably. I have Little Snitch Installed and tried turning off network filtering, then I uninstalled it to see if that was the issue... Fetch still has issues in all situations. I would really hate to have to go to another FTP client. I love Fetch and have used it for years and am always happy to pay for upgrades. PLEASE HELP! Thanks! -- I also saved a Fetch Log if that helps at all. I also noticed that if I connect using FTP with TLS/SSL it seems to work okay - but have not tested it for long

    I just tried exoboy's suggestion to login using TLS/SSL, but my host rejected it for incompatibility. So I tried SFTP... and it works fine! Went back to straight FTP and it broke again. So at least it works with SFTP. Does that help?

    I am having similar problems using Fetch 5.8.2 on my iMac’s Big Sur 11.3.1, too. No issues from previous Catalina 10.15.7.

    Firewall settings - Allow incoming connections:
    Fetch
    ftp-proxy
    ftpfs_agent

    Firewall settings - Block incoming connections (of interest):
    ARDAgent
    cups
    java
    kdc
    launchd
    master
    mediasharingd
    netbiosd
    prl_naptd
    rapport
    sshd_keygen-wrapper

    I have Norton Security 8.6.3.

    Workaround: Use Parallels Desktop Version 16.5.0 (49183)’s VM Catalina 10.15.7 without Norton installation. Works great! I keep relative clean MacOS VM’s versions for backward capabilities of various applications. It’s a pain. I guess I will use Fetch until further notice.

    VM’s Firewall settings - Block incoming connections:
    java
    mediasharingd
    netbiosd

    Hello Jim. I am a longtime FETCH user who recently upgraded to macOS Big Sur 11.5.2. Please advise what I can do to get FETCH up & running. Regards.

    Hi Jim and others,

    I don't know what happened but all of a sudden the situation with the 'empty file list' has vastly improved! I shall keep an eye on this but the problem may be all over.

    Best regards,
    Ferdi.

    Here is a repost of my message a while back… I changed my settings to SFTP and it has worked ever since. Not one glitch. :-)

    Hi Steve,
    I tried that at the time, it did not work for me. I use TLS/SSL, it is server dependant. Anyway, I can retire my old 2013 MacBook and fully use the 2020 purchase.
    Thanks and best regards,
    Ferdi.
