    I am about to upgrade my computer to MacOS Mojave, and before doing so I want to make sure that Fetch will work with this new Mac OS. Can you please confirm and possibly send me a version of fetch that will work with this new OS.

    I look forward to your response.

    The latest version of Fetch is NOT working with Mojave much to my disappointment. It's my hope, and others I'm sure, that this will be updated soon. I'd hate to have to replace what Ive been using forever for something else.

    I just updated my 2017 15-inch MacBook Pro to Mojave and Fetch is working for me. When I first opened it, MacOS did give me a message saying that it was a 32-bit app and that it eventually wouldn't work with future versions of the MacOS and that I should contact the developer to let them know. But again, Fetch is currently working for me after I updated to Mojave. I mostly use Fetch to upload html and images to my website, as well as to download assets from my FTP site using SFTP.

    I am also having Fetch issues with Mojave. I get the launch message mentioned above and it acts like it works but will not allow you to open files on the server and SAVE them. I am having to download files, edit and re-upload for them to work. Hope there is a fix soon.

    Oh, I don't usually edit files directly on the server. It did allow me to upload, edit, and save a simple text edit file on the server just now, but again, I mostly upload and download finished files from another application.

    This was my fear, as this program is used everyday to edit live on the server I defiantly appreciate all your feedback. I will wait to update my computer until a version or beta version is released that fixes the above mentioned issues.

    Jim Matthews - Can you provide us all with an update? Patiently waiting on your response.

    Hi Jason,

    I have not seen this problem on Mojave, so I am very interested in hearing more details. What editor are you using to edit remote files?

    Thanks,

    Hi Jim - I have tried with BBEDIT (v. 10.5.13) and Textedit. Neither allow me to edit and save live on the server as I did before the Mojave upgrade. I am running Fetch (v 5.7.5)

    As an update, I went ahead and installed Mojave. I am able to edit files live on the server and save back to the server. MBPro 15" 2012 - APF filesystem.

    On initial launch of fetch i was presented with a dialog stating that this version of fetch would not work in future versions of Mojave.

    With fetch opened, I selected a file on my server, clicked edit. Current version of bbedit (Installed before mojave as per bbedits instructions) opened the document. I made a change, clicked save, and a MAC OS dialog box opened asking permission to control Fetch. I clicked Allow, and the file was saved onto my server.

    For those of you who are saying this doesnt function like i stated, let me ask, did you install BBEDIT's Mojave update prior to the installation of Mojave? and did you remember seeing the dialog box asking is BBedit could control Fetch?

    I hope this information helps those that are having issue. Willing to explain this further if needed.

    Regards,

    Tom

    I'm seeing posts relating to BBEdit & Fetch which doesn't relate to the issues I'm encountering. I am using Fetch 5.7.7 and while I'm also a BBEdit user I am unable to connect using Fetch alone, free of BBEdit. Wen attempting Fetch displays "connecting" until I receive an "timed out" message.

    I have tried other ftp apps that imported settings from Fetch and they successfully connected indicating that this is a Fetch issue.

    Fetch has been my ftp application for more years than I can recall and would like to continue such use rather than be forced to use something else.

    Chris,

    Im sure the next question Jim will ask when he replies is to post your logs. Can you do so?

    You can do so by going to window:Fetch Transcripts.

    Try connecting to your site and post the "transcript"

    Good idea Tom:

    Fetch 5.7.7 (5H1795) Intel (Web Store) running on Mac OS X 10.14 (18A391) Intel English
    StuffIt Engine 0x820, StuffIt SDK Version 10.1.1b1
    Partial serial FETCH55001-A67E-6KFW T
    Connecting to ________.com port 21 (Mac OS X firewall is limiting connections to specific applications) (9/27/18, 2:01 PM)
    An FTP connection to “_______.com” could not be opened because the connection timed out. (There might be a problem with your network, or the server might not be responding.)

    As I mentioned, other apps are not having any issues and my firewall only effects incoming connections. Turned it off and tried again with the same results.

    I'm happy to say it's working again. Yea!

    The problem was unrelated to Fetch. It was a DNS error on my hosting site that they just informed me they fixed. I am relieved and slightly embarrassed that I jumped to the wrong conclusion after updating to Mojave.

    Jim Matthews - my continued thanks for a great application!

    I'm back to report that updating to Fetch 5.7.7 fixed my issue re: editing with Bbedit live on server in mojave. Thanks
