    I am manage an FTP server with clients that use Fetch to perform all of their uploading to my server. Recently I have noticed in my logs that uploaded files do not seem to be completing.

    Although this error is not always present, it was found in some of the fetch upload transcripts:
    215 UNIX Type: L8
    257 "/" is your current location
    502 Security server inhibited MACB command
    CWD /3/
    250 OK. Current directory is /3
    257 "/3" is your current location
    PORT 10,178,140,121,14,46
    get_reply():con_conn->Getline() returns -3253
    ftp_list: -30014 (state == GETTING_LIST)
    send_cmd():con_conn->Putline() returns -3253

    What do these errors mean?

    Something is going wrong with the establishment of the data connection (the connection that will be used to transfer the file). I would recommend having the user check the "Use passive mode transfers (PASV)" box in the Firewall section of Preferences. Does that help?
