    All sites including Fetch test timeout due to PASV passive mode data problem.
    Both OSx firewall and Norton Firewall are allowed connections with Fetch.
    Checked with FTP site admin and all OSX equipment using Fetch work on their connection
    uninstalled Fetch and reinstalled via new download
    checked and rechecked Fetch preference on General tab for PASV mode

    Were you able to connect to these servers with Fetch in the past, or is this the first time you've tried? Have you tried with Norton Firewall disabled?

    Found the problem.... VPN has to be disabled to use passively.
