    I have some outside vendors using fetch with this error. I have used cute on mac and ftp commander on pc and have no problem. Seems to be we are setting up fetch incorrectly.

    I am attempting to connect to a snap server running snap os

    They should try the following:

    Go to the "Miscellaneous" tab of the Fetch Preferences, and uncheck the "Use 'LIST -al' command to reveal hidden files" checkbox. Then try connecting again.

    (The LIST -al command is supported by most servers, but there are a few that don't like it.)

    If that still doesn't fix the problem, let us know and we'll investigate further.

    Unchecking the option caused it to work.
