Password no longer works (4 posts)

    Been a paid user of Fetch for well over a year now and suddenly my password no longer works. I run Mac OSX Tiger. Keychain access shows the password but I still cannot get into Fetch with it. I have not made any changes to anything. Should I trash Fetch and reinstall?!

    The problem is that you are trying to connect to a server that used to work and now you get an error, is that correct?

    We need some more information to figure out what the problem might be. After you try to connect and you get the error message, could you please choose Fetch Transcript from the Window menu, copy the contents of the transcript window, and paste them here? We'll take a look and try to figure out what's going on.

    Hi Greg,

    Thanks. Everything looks okay, except that the server doesn't recognize the password you're giving it.

    Does the password get entered automatically from the keychain? If so, what happens if you delete what the keychain enters, and you type it in yourself?

    If that doesn't work, the next step is to contact the server administrator/maintainer/owner and see if they can figure out why the server is refusing your password. It doesn't look like a Fetch problem.

    Sorry not to have an instant answer for you...
