Fetch could not get the file list because the FTP server dropped the connection (4 posts)

    Been accessing this site using Fetch for a couple of years now. For some reason, the last few times I've tried I get an error right away that says "Fetch could not get the file list because the FTP server dropped the connection. Try again, or contact the server administrator to verify that the server is running." If I try any other shortcut for several different sites, it's working perfectly but not this one specific site. The server is running and fully accessible, in fact I downloaded Cyberduck and when I first ran it, it got all my shortcuts from Fetch. I ran the link as is without changing anything for this site and it logged in on the first try without fail. I'm able to work just fine in Cyberduck, but of course I prefer Fetch. Closed Fetch and opened it again and same error for this site only. Anyway, here is the transcript:

    Fetch could not get the file list because the FTP server dropped the connection. (Try again, or contact the server administrator to verify that the server is running.)
    QUIT

    Any ideas???

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I think I know the source of this problem, and we have an experimental version of Fetch that should work. Please contact me at http://fetchsoftworks.com/fetch/feedback and I'll send you a download link for the experimental version.

    Thanks,

    I also am receiving this notice on my saved favorites, but they work fine in cyberduck. Have you released a new version? I am running 5.7.5 and it doesn't seem to want an update.
