    I installed the 5.01 update and now I cannot log on to any ftp sites. Fetch just locks up and shows as "Not responding". Help!

    We made a change between Fetch 5.0 and 5.0.1 to fix a problem that some people were having with choosing the application to open a file, which made the situation better for them, but unfortunately seems to have made things worse for others.

    Currently the best workaround is to go back to Fetch 5.0 (which you can download from if you don't still have it on your drive). We are working on other solutions, and talking to Apple people at the Worldwide Developer Conference this week about the problem.

    I was having the same problem and reverted to 5.0 which worked fine at the same sites. Beinf a glutton for punishment, I reinstalled 5.0.1 just to make sure it wasn't something I had done. However, I did manage to connect but it required a lot of patience, more than I have available this week! Went back to 5.0 even after downloading twice more to be sure I had a 'usable' Fetch file. Now that I've read Mr. McGuire's post, I'll stop hitting myself with the hammer! Hey! That feels good! ;-)

    BTW, I think I'm getting used to the new ( fewer windows ) interface. But please, not too many new tricks for us old dogs!
