    Hi Ernest,

    That error indicates that Fetch cannot find the server you are trying to connect to. That means either the hostname you're entering isn't the correct one (or has changed), or there is a problem with the server itself.

    You should contact the company or person who runs the server to have them look into the problem. If they confirm that there is not a problem with the server, verify the hostname, username, and password you should use to make sure you have the correct and most up-to-date information, and then try connecting again if they give you new information.

    (It sounds like you're using Fetch 4.0.3; Fetch 5.5 gives a more helpful error message in these cases.)

    Please let us know if you still have questions after talking to them.
