    Hi Sonny,

    Are you trying to see .htaccess files on the server, or on your Macintosh?

    Assuming you're trying to see them on the server:

    * Click Cancel to close the New Connection dialog, if necessary.
    * Choose Preferences from the Fetch menu
    * Click the Miscellaneous tab (in Fetch 4, click the Misc tab).
    * Make sure the "Omit filenames beginning with a period" checkbox is unchecked.
    * Close the Preferences.
    * Then connect to your server, or select the transfer window showing your files and choose View > Refresh (in Fetch 4, choose Directories > Refresh File List).

    If this does not fix your problem, let us know.
