    Hi there,

    I hope someone can help me with this. I have Fetch 5.3 and when I try to upload something to a specific client's server, I get the unexpected response window.

    I have been successful uploading to other people's ftp servers. It is just the client below that I have the problem with.

    I will e-mail you the transcript. But if anyone has any quick fixes for this...

    Thanks,
    Lynn

    Hi again,

    Sorry, I guess I should have read this in the Fetch Help window.

    "13. When I try to upload files, I get an error message from the server saying "STOU command not implemented" or "STOU: invalid number of parameters".

    When you use the Put command, do not set the "If a file already exists:" menu to Pick a different name in the Put dialog. Instead, set it to Replace existing file .

    When this menu is set to Pick a different name, Fetch sends the "STOU" command to the server (asking the server to give your file a unique name to make sure it does not replace an existing file). Some servers do not support the "STOU" command, and give this error as a result."

    Everything works perfectly now.

    Thanks again,
    Lynn
