    The screens on the FETCh don't match up with the pc ftp that we are using...

    Please let me know how they "line up". We've tried many combos... (the information is simulated)

    PC settings

    SITE NAME: mickey
    ADDRESS: (an ip number) PORT: (two digit port number)
    USERNAME: mickey
    PASSWORD: xxxxx

    Where should these go so that FETCH attachs to the proper places so that we can have a mac person upload information to our site?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not quite sure about "Site name" but my guess is that it is not actually part of the information needed to access the server, it's just a nickname that you give to make locating the information easier. So Fetch users do not need to enter that.

    "Address" would go in the "Hostname" field of Fetch.

    "Username" and "Password" go into the fields with the same names, that is, "Username" and "Password".

    "Port" usually doesn't need to be entered in Fetch, unless you are using a special port for your server. If the Port is 21, then that is the standard port and a Fetch user does not need to enter it to connect to your site.


    Site name = not necessary
    Address = Hostname
    Port = not necessary unless different from 21
    Username = Username
    Password = Password

    If this still doesn't work for you, let us know and we'll advise further.
