Firewall blocking ftp access? (2 posts)

    I am having trouble connecting to various FTP hosts from my work computer; only the 1 corporate server works, so i am assuming a firewall is blocking others? Also when I try checking for updates i get an error 407. Below is the FTP Transcript:

    Connected to port 21 (3/26/10 2:36:50 PM)
    220 Check Point FireWall-1 Secure FTP server running on corp_hts_fw1_2
    USER web1g4
    331 password: you can use password@password
    200 password: you can use 'quote password' or Account command ('ACCT')
    500 'SYST': command not understood
    421-Access denied - wrong user name or password
    421 aborted:

    I have tried a few various ftps and double checked all user names and passwords so I don't think that is it. Using Fetch 5.2 on Mac 10.5.

    Thanks for any help!

    Hi Sergio,

    It looks like you need to configure Fetch to use your network's proxy server. I would recommend asking the firewall administrator for help with this, as there are a number of different kinds of proxy servers. You'll want to go to the Proxy tab of Fetch's Preferences dialog and choose the right kind from the Proxy type pop-up menu.

    Please let me know if you run into any problems.
